Overview

1901. Sir Walter Scott was a master of diverse talents. He was a man of letters, a dedicated historian and historiographer, a well-read translator of foreign texts, and a talented poet. Deriving most of his material from his native Scotland, its history and its legends, Scott invented and mastered what we know today as the historical novel. Anne of Geierstein is set in Central Europe in the fifteenth century. With this novel Scott concludes the unfinished historical business of Quentin Durward, working on a larger canvas with broader brush-stokes and generally with more somber colors. The novel also illustrates the darkening of Scott's historical vision in the final part of his career. See the many other works by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
