Argues that Scott had more impact on how Shakespeare was produced and consumed across all media and across the globe in the 19th century than any other writer, for it was the new historical sensibility that Scott inaugurated and popularized that ratified the idea of Shakespeare as in and of history.

Includes a discussion of adaptations of Scott's novels, particularly Rob Roy. Argues that, in contrast to eighteenth-century portrayals of the case, Scott's treatment of the Porteous Riots of Edinburgh in The Heart of Mid-Lothian was significant in bringing to prominence a paradigm in which working-class men could contribute to civic management through policing, so long as they embraced long-held notions of masculine control held by both the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century urban elite.
Downmarket dissemination of the Waverley Novels in nineteenth-century Britain is usually considered in terms of collected editions, but adaptations for print and stage played an important role in placing Scott's fiction at the centre of contemporary social tensions. Melodramatic versions of The Heart of Mid-Lothian performed in London provide the basis for a case study describing the participation of venue, performance, and audience in successful production and reception.
The involvement of commerce and politics, print and theatre, upmarket and working-class audiences indicates the importance of Scott adaptations in the study of the Waverley Novels, Romanticism, popular culture, and national identity and group formation in the 19th century. Identifies national and develops transnational approaches to book history by considering thematic, formal, and material means of transmission relevant to the participation of the Waverley Novel in modern self-identity and group formation, with particular emphasis on The Heart of Mid-Lothian.
Argues that, despite the extreme freedom of the libretto by Jules Adenis and Vernoy de Saint-Georges, the work pays indirect homage to Scott by rewriting scenes or situations drawn from his novel. His opera reflects aspects of Second Empire French society and the roles it assigned to women, thus pre-empting his revolutionary Carmen.
Includes pp. Includes a discussion of the Waverley Novels pp. Includes a discussion of Scott pp. Discusses autobiographical documents by Scott which consider physical illness and anonymity not as handicaps but as empowering to his writing. Goes on to analyse Redgauntlet which is autobiographical precisely in that it echoes these correlations of illness, incognito and authorship. On a Spanish translation of Waverley. Focuses on Wordsworth's relations with Scott. For Scott, the palimpsest becomes a formal structuring principle through his use of multiple narrators to relate historical events.
His narratives rely on complex editorial apparati and the use of paratexts — fictional footnotes, documentary evidence, proems and epigraphs. These unveil both his hyper-reflexive attittude towards the ability to fully represent the past, which is essentially beyond reference, and his critical engagement with historical documents and memories. Focussing on Old Mortality and Redgauntlet , this essay argues that the palimpsestic form of Scott's narrative founds and obscures Scotland's national origin. Ivanhoe is on one level a novel about the futility of nostalgia, and is critical of characters who attempt to live in the past.
Fiction Rivals Science: The French Novel from Balzac to Proust
At the same time, it evokes a powerful longing for 'Olden Times' through its representations of the medieval home. This article argues that the reflective-nostalgic figures of hospitality and home are used by Scott to engage his readers emotionally with the strange and with the idea of the stranger. A chapter on the Scottish contribution to the historical novel, with two sections specifically devoted to Scott: 'Themes and issues in the Waverley Novels' and 'Scott and the problem of England'.

Includes a discussion of Scott's influence on Robert Louis Stevenson. However unfaithful the libretto, however, Rossini's music captures the heroic and legendary spirit of Scott's original with an extended, inventive and attentive orchestration, thus indicating a decisive step in the 'Rossinian Revolution' with the development of a pastoral style, one of the bases of Romantic opera.
Nevertheless, Scott's view of historical change as largely effected by military power also refuses to underwrite history as either providential or inherently progressive. His distinctive nostalgia asserts the lost potential of the past as a missing presence in the here and now. On the entries in Scott's Journal recording his visits to Brighton, where one grandchild, John Hugh Lockhart, was taken for his health and where another son, Walter Lockhart-Scott, 3rd Laird of Abbotsford, was born. On conflicting bibliographical claims regarding the number of editions of Paul's Letters to his Kinsfolk published in Includes discussions of Waverley and Quentin Durward.
