Andrew Lang: The Life Of Sir Walter Scott
If all reading mankind had time to read Lockhart's Life of Scott, a brief volume on Sir Walter would be a thing without excuse. The author still has tried to compress as much as possible of the essence of Lockhart's great book into this space, with a few additions from other sources.
Chapter I - Ancestry, Childhood, Youth, First Love, Marriage
Chapter Ii - Early Married Life, Ballad Collecting, Lay Of The Last Minstrel, Marmion
Chapter Iii - Quarterly Review, Lady Of The Lake, Rokeby, Ballantyne Affairs
Chapter Iv - The Waverley Novels
Chapter V - Guy Mannering To Kenilworth
Chapter Vi - Novels, Financial Ruin, Death
This book is annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.
