The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

861 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 5,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Heart of Mid-Lothian is precisely focused on the trials for murder of John Porteous and of Effie Deans in 1736 and 1737. Yet it is a chronicle - Scott's only chronicle - which spans the eighty years of the life of David Deans, whose death takes place in 1751. It is the most complex of all Scott's narratives. It is also the most challenging in that it raises in an acute fashion the problem of a judicial system that does not produce justice. Scott places this fundamental issue in its immediate political context, in history as represented by the life of Deans, and alongside the justice of Providence as perceived by his daughter Jeanie, the greatest of Scott's heroines." "This edition of The Heart of Mid-Lothian provides a new text established in accordance with the tried policies and practices of the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels, and in its annotation treats comprehensively the novel's historical, legal, religious and cultural sources."--Jacket

The antiquary by Walter Scott( Book )

900 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 4,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third of Sir Walter Scott's acclaimed Waverley Novels, a series that included Rob Roy and Ivanhoe, The Antiquary is set in Scotland in the last years of the eighteenth century and centers around Jonathan Oldbuck, the antiquary, the closest to a self-portrait of any of Scott's characters."--BOOK JACKET. "The passionate lover, a familiar character to readers of Sir Walter Scott, is here represented by Lovell, who relentlessly pursues the woman he hopes to marry. The antiquary is a constant commentator on the characters and their actions, always at hand to provide his opinionated version of the story."--BOOK JACKET. "While the reader may be swept up in the exciting plot, The Antiquary is a book that is not to be hurried; it has come to be appreciated for its rich description of a bygone age. This fine new edition of the book, restoring the original version drawn directly from Scott's manuscript, is accompanied by a critical essay, as well as annotations and a comprehensive glossary by a prominent scholar in the field."--BOOK JACKET

A legend of the wars of Montrose by Walter Scott( )

186 editions published between 1819 and 2017 in English and German and held by 3,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I think this fellow Dalgetty is one of those horse-leeches, whose appetite for blood being only sharpened by what he has sucked in foreign countries, he is now returned to batten upon that of his own." Such is one character's view of the Scottish mercenary of the seventeenth century. Yet there is in Dugald Dalgetty's professional ethic, his blundering Latin, his loving care of his horse, and his own self-absorption, more genuine humanity than in the political and religious principles of Royalists and Covenanters alike. And the picture which emerges is not of violence imported into Scotland from Germany but of a country destroyed by uncompromising religious hatred, political bigotry, tribal feud and personal enmity. A Legend of the Wars of Montrose centres on one episode in the most bloody of Scotland's civil wars, Montrose's campaign for King Charles I in 1644-45; it is a short and savage tale."--BOOK JACKET
Marmion : a tale of Flodden Field by Walter Scott( Book )

573 editions published between 1807 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 3,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the battle of Flodden Field. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara. --Wikipedia.com

The lay of the last minstrel by Walter Scott( Book )

513 editions published between 1805 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 3,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps our networked world isn't a universal doorway to freedom. Might it be a distraction from reality? An ostrich hole to divert our attention and resources from social problems? A misuse of technology that encourages passive rather than active participation? I'm starting to ask questions like this, and I'm not the first. - Preface
The monastery by Walter Scott( Book )

657 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 3,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set on the eve of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland, The Monastery is full of supernatural events, theological conflict, and humour. Located in the lawless Scottish Borders, the novel depicts the monastery of Kennaquhair (a thinly disguised Melrose Abbey, whose ruins are still to be seen near Scott's own home at Abbotsford) on the verge of dissolution, and the fortunes of two brothers as they respond to a new social and religious order. Highlights of the narrative include a moving encounter between two representatives of opposing sides in the Reformation controversy who had been students together in less troubled times, and the final formal procession of the Kennaquhair monks as the reformed forces arrive. A talking-point when the work was first published, the mysterious spectral White Lady, guardian of the magical Black Book, still intrigues readers. A strong comic element is provided by Sir Piercie Shafton with his absurd linguistic mannerisms fashionable at the English court. The narrative is preceded by one of Scott's most charming and playful introductory exchanges between the fictional local antiquary Cuthbert Clutterbuck and the Author of Waverley."--Jacket
The fortunes of Nigel by Walter Scott( Book )

633 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well versed in the political literature of the period, Walter Scott drew a detailed picture of London in the early 17th century while charting the effects of Scottish influx into the English capital; the ambitions and fears of the incomers and the suspicion they aroused. The complex web of political (and sexual) intrigue, and especially of all-important financial dealings and double-dealings, is traced with a master's hand." "No Scott novel has a more memorable cast of characters. King James heads them, with his childish irresponsibility and elusive character; a would-be Solomon and father of his country, theological disputant, prurient bisexual. But not far behind are jeweller George Heriot, clockmaker Davie Ramsay, courtier Sir Mungo Malagrowther, servant Richie Moniplies and many vivid minor characters."--Jacket
The black dwarf by Walter Scott( )

224 editions published between 1822 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1816 Scott had written three successful novels and the public was clamoring for more. In a change of direction Scott set out to write four "tales" illustrating the manners and customs of Scotland, to be issued together as Tales of My Landlord. The first of these, The Black Dwarf is a novella set in Liddesdale in the Scottish Borders. It is 1708; in the aftermath of the Union of Scotland and England a group of Jacobites plots the restoration of the Stuart monarchy and Scottish independence. Against this turbulent backdrop of nationalist passions and cross-border feuding, a gothic tale of love and danger unfolds. At its center is the grotesque figure of the mysterious and solitary Black Dwarf who symbolically frees the heroine Isabella Vere from a violent, patriarchal past, and helps her choose a peace-loving Scottish laird as her husband
The pirate by Walter Scott( Book )

677 editions published between 1821 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 2,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No historical figures appear in The Pirate, and there are no historical events, but it is still an historical novel because it dramatises those 'corners of time' where an old era is coming to an end, and a new era is beginning. The novel is set in Orkney and Shetland in 1689, and for the northern isles the 'Glorious Revolution' actually means the beginning of the cultural dominance of Scotland and the advent of English power." "Scott draws heavily on the diary he kept on his tour round the lighthouses of Scotland in 1814. In both the diary and the novel he weighs the real need to improve the agricultural methods of this barely subsistence economy against the force of tradition and the human cost of rapid change." "The plot hinges on an illicit relationship, and is driven by dark men twisted by their criminality, an obsessed woman searching for her lost son, and the murderous rivalry of two young men - a family tale which illustrates the uses and abuses of traditional lore, as well as Scott's extraordinary grasp of the literature of the north."--Jacket
