Off to the crusades to prove himself worthy of the lovely Rowena, Ivanhoe battles the templars, enters a tournament with the trecherous King John and saves Rebecca from burning for sorcery--the forerunner of the romance-adventure genre. 434 pages, with notes.

Based on the acclaimed Edinburg Edition of the Waverley Novels. The first authoritative edition drawn from Scott's original texts, with a special introduction for the Penguin Classics edition. Crowded with incident and full of memorable characters, among them wicked Prince John, the outlaw Robin Hood and the beautiful Jewess Rebecca, Ivanhoe is Scott's most high-spirited novel.
Ivanhoe, banished by his father, Cedris, for falling in love with Cedric's ward Rowena, wins the trust of Richard Coeur-de-Lion at the Crusades. Returning to England to claim his inheritance, Ivanhoe is drawn into the struggle between Richard and his brother John. In the three central scenes of the book - the great tournament at Ashby-de-la-Souche, the siege of Front de Boeuf's castle and Rebecca's trial for witchcraft - Scott draws together the apparently opposing themes of historical reality and chivalric romance, social realism and high adventure, past and present.

The heroic adventures of Sir Wilfred make Ivanhoe perhaps Scott's most unforgettable work: the fiery rescue of Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe and his fellow captives from Knight Templar's castle by Robin Hood; the wounded Ivanoes's trial by combat with the powerful Knight to save the lovely Jewess Rebecca from the stake; and King Richard the Lion-Hearted's aid in Ivanhoe's triumph at evil King John's tournament. To follow Sir Wilfred's spirited exploits is to enter the colorful era of medieval England, a world of romance and chilvalry, crusades and tradition.

Scott's tour de force of family intrigue has two heroes. Francis Osbaldistone, dispatched in disgrace from London, joins his foxhunting cousins at their ancestral seat in Northumberland. His suspicions of villainous Rashleigh Osbaldistone, and the request of Diana Vernon, the cousin whom Francis loves, draw in Scott's other hero, the brave, bitter Highlander nad enigmatic outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. Set on the eve of the Jacobite rising of 1715, Rob Roy in some ways the quintessential English-Scottish encounter, does not give up its secrets until the very last page. Few novels can match it for suspense and narrative daring, and in the swirl and colour of its characters we can agree with Hazlitt: "Sir Walter has found out (oh, rare discovery!)...that there is no romance like the romance of real life."

It was Waverly (considered 'indescribably sensational' by one American scholar) that may be considered as the instrument of that success - the historical novel,properly speaking, did not exist before Scott wrote it. Yet, as the critic George Saintsbury put it:'In a few years the whole of Europe was greedily reading historical novels, and a considerable part of the literary population of Europe was busily writing them.' In Waverly, his highly readable story of a romantic young man in the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, Scott blends realism and romance, the old world and the new, Enlightenment and Romanticism. Waverly stands ultimately for peace and stability, for social and political cohesion and harmony - qualities which may consciously or unconsciously, account for its immense popularity.

From Montrose to Culloden, the fourth volume in Sir Walter Scott's story of his beloved Scotland, recounts the heroic saga of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite Risings of the eighteenth century. With an emphasis on romantic spirit of that age, these chapters demonstrate the power of the nation to shape its own destiny and to steer toward the realization of Scotland's national legacy. These stories proved to be the most intimate, most accessible, and most dramatic of all the tales Scott ever presented to his readers. From William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to John Knox and Mary Queen of Scots, from the subjugation of Rob Roy and the rising of the Jacobites to the crusade of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the quest of the Duke of Cumberland, these Tales of a Scottish Grandfather cover the entire romantic story of Scotland as a grandfather would want to tell it to his grandchildren, for Scott specifically addressed these stories to his ten-year-old grandson. Scott focuses all of his narrative power in these tales for the sake of love- love of family, love of place, and love of legacy. This history of Scotland is the richer for it.

Early in 1817 Scott received in an unsigned letter the seed of The Heart of Mid-Lothian and began immediately to shape from historical fact the story of Jeanie Deans, a dairymaid who, while refusing to lie to save her sister's life, journeys to London to beg for a reprieve. Set in the 1730s in a Scotland uneasily united with England, the novel dramatizes different kinds of justice, that meted out by the Edinburgh mob in the lynching of one Captain Porteous, and that encountered by a young girl on trial for infanticide.
A bestseller from Philadelphia to St. Petersburg, an inspiration to succeeding novelists from Balzac to George Eliot, The Heart of Mid-Lothian is the seventh and finest of Scott's 'Waverley' novels. This edition, based on the first edition of 1818, incorporates many new corrections from the manuscript and from other sources. Tony Inglis prodives a full introduction to the historical background, and to the novel's rich use of language and dialect, its themes and narrative modes.

"No historian's Queen Elizabeth was ever so perfectly a woman as the fictitous Elizabeth of Kenilworth," wrote Thomas Hardy. Scott's magnificent novel re-creates the drama and the strange mixture of assurance and profound unease of the Age of Elizabeth through the story of Amy Robsart. A woman of great beauty and integrity, Amy is married to the Earl of Leicester, one of the Queen's favourites, who must keep Amy confined to Cumnor Place and the marriage a secret, or incur royal displeasure.

The epitome of the chivalric novel, Ivanhoe sweeps listeners into Medieval England and the lives of a memorable cast of characters. Ivanhoe, a trusted ally of Richard the Lion Hearted, returns from the Crusades to reclaim the inheritance his father denied him. Rebecca, a vibrant, beautiful Jewish woman, is defended by Ivanhoe against a charge of witchcraft---but it is Lady Rowena who is Ivanhoe's true love. The wicked Prince John plots to usurp England's throne, but two of the most popular heroes in all of English literature---Richard the Lion Hearted and the well-loved, famous outlaw Robin Hood---team up to defeat the Normans and regain the castle. The success of this novel lies with Sir Walter Scott's skillful blend of historic reality, chivalric romance, and high adventure.

IN this evocative biography of the creator of such classics as Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, Kennilworth, and The Lady of the Lake, the great 19th century author lives again in all his vigor, skill, and indomitable courage. The magnetic Scotsman, whose great novels of swashbuckling historical adventure made him the most popular author of his day, was born a puny child, lame from infancy. For his entire life, he worked continuously to write successful books. An old Scottish ballad sings, "a stout heart for a steep climb." Sir Walter Scott had both.
