Description

1906. While best known for his translations of classical literature and as a collector of folk and fairy tales, Lang also wrote poetry, biographies, histories, novels, literary criticisms and even children's books. This is his biography on Sir Walter Scott, who created and popularized historical novels in a series called the Waverley Novels. In his novels Scott arranged the plots and characters so the reader enters into the lives of both great and ordinary people caught up in violent, dramatic changes in history. All of his novels were published anonymously until after the financial crash of 1825-26 when the author's anonymity was destroyed. Though the novels were all published without his name they were grouped into various series including By The Author of Waverley; two appeared under the title Tales From Benedictine Sources, another two as Tales of the Crusaders, and four as Chronicles of the Canongate. The remainder of Scott's novels were published under the heading Tales of my Landlord. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
