In the 19th century, the world’s best known writer was probably Sir Walter Scott, who was one of the first writers to have a following across the globe in his lifetime. The Scottish writer still pops up in literature classes across the world, with people instantly familiar with titles like Ivanhoe, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Bride of Lammermoor, and more. Scott is often considered the inventor of the modern historical novel, and his style was imitated throughout the 19th century. His legacy has been debated ever since, but everyone can agree that he has remained influential.
The Betrothed is the first of two Tales of the Crusaders, the second being The Talisman. Taking place in the 12th century, Scott’s novel tells a story of a Welsh girl who’s rescued and betrothed in the Welsh Marches. This edition of Scott’s The Betrothed is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Scott, his life and work.
