Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet (15 August 1771 – 21 September 1832), was a Scottish historian, novelist, poet, and playwright. Many of his works remain classics of European and Scottish literature, notably the novels Ivanhoe (1819), Rob Roy (1817), Waverley (1814), Old Mortality (1816), The Heart of Mid-Lothian (1818), and The Bride of Lammermoor (1819), along with the narrative poems Marmion (1808) and The Lady of the Lake (1810). He had a major impact on European and American literature.

As an advocate, judge, and legal administrator by profession, he combined writing and editing with his daily work as Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire. He was prominent in Edinburgh's Tory establishment, active in the Highland Society, long a president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (1820–1832), and a vice president of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (1827–1829). His knowledge of history and literary facility equipped him to establish the historical novel genre as an exemplar of European Romanticism. He became a baronet of Abbotsford in the County of Roxburgh, Scotland, on 22 April 1820; the title became extinct on his son's death in 1847.

Here is the granddaddy of popular historical fiction as a genre, Sir Walter Scott's 1815 novel that takes place sixty years earlier in Scotland. At that time 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' rose up to contest the Hanoverian succession to the English throne by George I, as a loyalist to his father James and his Stuart lineage. Scott inserts his own fictional hero into this drama: Edward Waverley, an English soldier with conflicting family loyalties who gets caught up in the turmoil. As the protagonist Edward has a fatal flaw in that he always goes where he is sent and does what he is advised to do. His passage is aided further by a fairy godmother in the person of Colonel Talbot who can clear away any troubles that arise. Scott writes in a stiffly formal style that is far more tell than show and given to needless authorial insertions, making him less friendly to read than his contemporary Jane Austen. I think I've had my fill of him, though his descriptions are rich with detail and he performed a fine, sympathetic service for Scotland by romanticizing its people and the land they occupy. This element is sure to be the novel's most lasting in my memory.… (mais)

This is one of Scott's most famous novels, named after the Tolbooth prison in the heart of Edinburgh. The basic plotline concerns Effie Deans, who gives birth to a child who disappears and who as a consequence is arrested and tried for its murder on the basis of a harsh Scots law in force at the time which gives a presumption of guilt to a mother in these circumstances. Her sister Jean makes a solo trip to London to beg mercy from the King and Queen. This plot is well and dramatically told, as are the rebellious events around the death of Captain Porteous, but much of the story's effect was marred for me by the heavy use of Scots vernacular for the speech of many of the characters, and the doings of rigid and unbending members of the Scottish kirk. I know it is not the point for the style of novels written two centuries ago, but this could have been a better read if around 30% shorter. That said, this is a good novel and rightly regarded as one of Scott's best novels.… (mais)

Bonnie Prince Charlie and the '45 by Sir Walter Scott This was an excerpt from Scott's Tales of a Grandfather. It told the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie from his landing in Scotland through the Battle of Culloden and his eventual escape from Scotland. I think Gabaldon's version of the Battle of Culloden is much better. I don't think I will be seeking out the unabridged version. 4 hours 45 minutes

Scott er kongen af historiske romaner med masser af titler og masser af læsere gennem tiden. Quentin Durward er min tredje Scott-roman efter Waverley og Ivanhoe, og selvom den er knap så berømt, så er det den, jeg synes bedst om.

Romanen foregår i Frankrig i det 15. århundrede. Ludvig XI er konge af Frankrig, og han er på mange måder den mest interessante af bogens personer. Det er endelig lykkedes at smide englænderne ud, men der er stadig lang vej til et samlet og stærkt Frankrig. Ludvig skyer ingen midler for at fremme den udvikling, og han er spændende, fordi han mere er politiker i Machiavellis ånd end optaget af den sene riddertids idealer. Romanen foregår i 1468 og meget af den er historisk præcis, men den tager sig selvfølgelig også nogle friheder med fiktive personer og sammensætning af begivenheder, der var foregået over flere år.

Kongen havde traditionelt et elitekorps af udenlandske lejetropper til at stå for sin personlige sikkerhed i form af de skotske bueskytter. De var helt og aldeles afhængige af kongens gunst og blev derfor regnet for mere pålidelige end de franske vasaller, der også var herskere i egen ret. Quentin Durward er skotte og adelig, men han har mistet sin familie og sit gods i voldsomme rivaliseringer med konkurrerende klaner. Nu opsøger han sin onkel, der er veteran i kongens garde, og selvom Quentin ikke er meget for Ludvigs metoder, så ender han med at blive nødt til at indrullere sig i garden, efter at han har blandet sig i en henrettelse.

På det tidspunkt er Frankrig udfordret af Burgund. Det er ganske vist kun et hertugdømme og Karl den Dristige er officielt Ludvigs vasal, men hans rigdom og magt er enorm. Hans basis er det østlige Frankrig og Nederlandene, der på dette tidspunkt var centrum for handel og produktion af kostbart klæde. Der har tidligere været krig, og Ludvig forsøger hele tiden at underminere Burgunds interesser bl.a. ved at prikke til oprørstrangen hos borgerne i Liège. Da Durward kommer til kongens borg, har han desuden (om end uofficielt) givet husly til to komtesser af Croye, der har afslået det ægteskab, som Karl har arrangeret på deres vegne.

Ludvig er kendt for sin evne til at vælge den rigtige person til den rigtige opgave, og da han samtidig gerne går uden om adelige med egne interesser og for mange skrupler, finder han snart opgaver til Durward. Først og fremmest bliver han udpeget til at ledsage de to komtesser til Liège, da det ikke længere er holdbart at have dem ved hoffet. Det bliver selvsagt en dramatisk rejse, for de politiske intriger er langt fra overstået. Til gengæld er der amoriner i luften mellem Quentin og den unge komtesse Isabella, og selvom det på overfladen er en umulig forbindelse, så er det jo også en romantisk fortælling.

En god historisk roman skal placere en interessant fiktiv fortælling i en genkendelig historisk virkelighed. Det lykkes vældig godt for Scott i Quentin Durward, og samtidig bliver romanen meget bedre af, at der faktisk findes detaljerede kilder til Ludvig og hans sammensatte person. Der vil givetvis være nogen, der synes at beskrivelserne er for lange og sproget for tungt, men det generede mig egentlig ikke. Til gengæld var den fordomsfulde beskrivelse af romaer, som alle parter bruger, når der skal udføres særligt lumske opgaver, trættende.
