Redgauntletby Walter Scott
Scott's 1824 Redgauntlet is the final novel in his series
Although primarily remembered for his extensive literary works and his political engagement, Scott was an advocate, judge and legal administrator by profession, and throughout his career combined his writing and editing work with his daily occupation as Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire.
Scott's 1824 Redgauntlet is the final novel in his series about the doomed Jacobite cause. The problem, in Scott's view, was that the royal Stuart dynasty was inherently feudal -- and the time in history for feudalism was past. This is a place and a time where deception and lies have become accepted for the preservation of peace -- a peace that is only skin deep. . . .
