i Ivanhoe i was the first of Scott s novels to adopt a purely English subject and was also his first attempt to combine history and romance which later influenced Victorian medievalism Set at the time of the Norman Conquest Ivanhoe returns from the Crusades to claim his inheritance and the love of Rowena and becomes involved in the struggle between Richard Coeur de Lion and his Norman brother John The gripping narrative is structured by a series of conflicts Saxon versus Norman Christian versus Jew men versus women played out against Scott s unflinching moral realism, Early in Scott received in an unsigned letter the seed of i The Heart of Mid Lothian i 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 s 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 br br A bestseller from Philadelphia to St Petersburg an inspiration to succeeding novelists from Balzac to George Eliot i The Heart of Mid Lothian i is the seventh and finest of Scott s Waverley novels This edition based on the first edition of incorporates many new corrections from the manuscript and from other sources Tony Inglis provides a full introduction to the historical background and to the novel s rich use of language and dialect its themes and narrative modes, Scott s i tour de force i 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 and enigmatic outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor br br Set on the eve of the Jacobite rising of i Rob Roy i 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, The Talisman is Sir Walter Scott s tale of the Crusades a tale of chivalry of violence of virtue romance and deceit In Scott s own words the warlike character of Richard I wild and generous a pattern of chivalry with all its extravagant virtues and its no less absurd errors was opposed to that of Saladin in which the Christian and English monarch showed all the cruelty and violence of an Eastern sultan and Saladin on the other hand displayed the deep policy and prudence of a European sovereign whilst each contended which should excel the other in the knightly qualities of bravery and generosity This singular contrast afforded as the author conceived materials for a work of fiction possessing peculiar interest
