Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen ( )
10 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher

Romanticism's debatable lands by C Lamont ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The phrase 'debatable lands' came into use in the sixteenth century with reference to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish border. It was Walter Scott, writing in the Romantic period, who brought it to a wider public, and it gradually came to be applied both to disputed territories in other parts of the world and also, by metaphorical extension, to disputes which were not so much geographical but intellectual, political or artistic. The concept of 'debatable lands', because of its denial of a boundary, creates a space outside any acknowledged territory where the unexpected can happen. This new collection of essays uses the phrase as a starting point to explore questions of nation and border, empire and colonization in the Romantic period, exploring a range of genres including biography, scientific and travel writing and antiquarianism

Waverley : or, 'Tis sixty years since by Walter Scott ( Book )
3 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first historical novel in English, Waverly (1814) is set during the Jacobite rising in Scotland in 1745. Edward Waverly, a young English soldier in the Hanoverian army, is sent to Scotland. He visits a Jacobite laird in the lowlands of Perthshire and then makes his way into the Highlands, where he meets a chieftain and his clansmen. Before long Waverly is caught up in the Jacobite cause, offering his allegiance to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, and to the dauntless Flora Mac-Ivor. The hero's journey of self-discovery takes place in a country torn by civil war, as the political outlook of the eighteenth century meets the older social organization of the Highlands in violent confrontation. This novel springs from Scott's childhood recollections and his desire to preserve in writing the features of life in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. Waverley was first published anonymously in 1814 and was Scott's first novel. --Publisher description

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
[In this volume], three masterly stories all show lives transformed - and, in some cases, destroyed - by worlds and cultures in conflict. In "The Highland Widow", a mother is devastated when her son announces his intention to join the British army to fight in America, and uses all her cunning to keep him at home. "The Two Drovers" is a tale of a prophecy fulfilled in which the Englishman Harry Wakerfield is set against his Scottish friend Robin Oig in a destructive and ultimately tragic quarrel. "The Surgeon's Doughter" follows the fortunes of three young Scots who attempt to settle in India during the early years of the British Empire.-Back cover
