A.N. Wilson shows how Scott combinedhis life as a prolific novelist, poet, biographer, historian, and anthologist with that of a lawyer, landowner, border farmer, part-time soldier and paterfamilias. He also discusses the general indifference that has surrounded Scott in this century and reveals the distortions of his Victorianidolators, recapturing the freshness of Scott as he appeared to his contemporaries.
