Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Ivanhoe is a vivid recreation of Norman-Saxon conflict in 12th century England. Framing a royal myth of national cultural identity and drawing on the conventions of Gothic fiction with its risky and racial themes, Scott has skilfully explored the violent origins and limits of English nationhood. After returning from the Third Crusade, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe claims his inheritance and the love of Rowena. His heroic adventures involve him in a war against John, a malignant brother of Richard with whom he has allied. The struggle brings Ivanhoe into an alliance with the infamous Robin Hood and he has to save the sensual Rebecca who also falls in love with him.
