Product Description

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.

Author Bio

Sir Walter Scott was born in Edinburgh in 1771. Educated for the law, he obtained the office of sheriff-depute of Selkirkshire in 1799 and in 1806 the office of clerk of session, a post whose duties he fulfilled for some twenty-five years. His lifelong interest in Scottish antiquity and the ballads which recorded Scottish history led him to try his hand at narrative poems of adventure and action. The Lay of the Last Minstrel (1805), Marmion (1808), and The Lady of the Lake (1810) made his reputation as one of the leading poets of his time. A novel, Waverley, which he had begun in 1805, was published anonymously in 1814. Subsequent novels appeared with the note "by the author of Waverley"; hence his novels often are called collectively "the Waverley novels." Some of the most famous of these are Old Mortality (1816), Rob Roy (1817), Ivanhoe (1819), Kenilworth (1821), and Quentin Durward (1823). In recognition of his literary work Scott was made a baronet in 1819. During his last years he held various official positions and published biographies, editions of Swift and Dryden, tales, lyric poetry, and various studies of history and antiquity. He died in 1832.
