Excerpt from The Waverley Novels, Vol. 15 The Captain was engineer enough to discover that the train was fired; and therefore heard, in the course of the same day, without the least surprise, that Lady Ashton had resolved to abridge her visit to Lady Blenkensop, and set forth with the peep of morning on her return to Scotland, using all the dispatch which the state of the roads, and the mode of travelling, would possibly permit.

INTRODUCTION TO THE PIRATE. “Quoth he, there was a ship.” This brief preface may begin like the tale of the Ancient Mariner, since it was on shipboard that the author acquired the very moderate degree of local knowledge and information, both of people and scenery, which he has endeavoured to embody in the romance of the Pirate. In the summer and autumn of 1814, the author was invited to join a party of Commissioners for the Northern Light-House Service, who proposed making a voyage round the coast of Scotland, and through its various groups of islands, chiefly for the purpose of seeing the condition of the many lighthouses under their direction,—edifices so important, whether regarding them as benevolent or political institutions. Among the commissioners who manage this important public concern, the sheriff of each county of Scotland which borders on the sea, holds ex-officio a place at the Board. These gentlemen act in every respect gratuitously, but have the use of an armed yacht, well found and fitted up, when they choose to visit the lighthouses. An excellent engineer, Mr. Robert Stevenson, is attached to the Board, to afford the benefit of his professional advice. The author accompanied this expedition as a guest; for Selkirkshire, though it calls him Sheriff, has not, like the kingdom of Bohemia in Corporal Trim’s story, a seaport in its circuit, nor its magistrate, of course, any place at the Board of Commissioners,—a circumstance of little consequence where all were old and intimate friends, bred to the same profession, and disposed to accommodate each other in every possible manner.

This is a stimulating introduction to Sir Walter Scott. It is a succinct and penetrating study of the influences on him of both classical and enlightened Edinburgh and of Border and Jacobite tradition. In his famous book in 1936 Edwin Muir raised, but did not satisfactorily answer, the questions of what Scotland had done for Scott and what he had done for Scotland. This book offers new and more deeply considered answers. It throws light both on Sir Walter Scott and on the dilemma which faced Scotland then and which faces it still.

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet, he was the first to attain international popularity in his lifetime and many of his novels have become classics. Scott achieved international fame through his poetry, but he wanted to write novels documenting his research into the oral tradition of the Scottish Borders. This type of literature was considered inferior to poetry as a vehicle for expressing historical epics. Hence, he started writing the Waverley Novels anonymously. As more and more novels were published he became known as "The Author of Waverley" or "The Wizard of the North." Amongst some circles it was an open secret that Scott was the author, but he maintained the facade. In 1815 he dined George, Prince Regent, who wanted to meet the "Author of Waverley." This volume contains the second three Waverley Novels: Rob Roy gives us a first-hand view of Scottish Highland and Lowland society, and the way the regions viewed each other just before the 1715 Jacobite Rising. Frank Osbaldistone is the protagonist and having quarrelled with his father, he is sent to stay with his uncle, in Northumberland. This is a book filled with mystery, suspense, swashbuckling adventure and romance. In this novel, there is an aura of mystery around Rob Roy and a most beautiful romance with Diana who is a fascinating and captivating character. Ivanhoe is based in Medieval England and is the ultimate chivalric novel. Ivanhoe, is an ally of Richard-the-Lion-Hearted and returns from the Crusades to reclaim his inheritance. Chivalry, romance, knights in shining armour, the plight of Jews, mystery, suspense, Robin Hood and his merry men, castles complete with jesters, battles, damsels in distress, evil conspirators, jousts, humour. It's all there. Kenilworth is a romantic story, the chief character being Amy Robsart who is married to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, however he wants to keep the marriage a secret. He is determined to win the heart of the Virgin Queen Elizabeth and his evil genius is unleashed when she comes to stay at Kenilworth Castle in 1575.
