The pirate by Walter Scott( Book )

5 editions published between 1822 and 1834 in English and held by 9 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
The fortunes of Nigel by Walter Scott( Book )

4 editions published between 1822 and 1834 in English and held by 9 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
