Walter Scott: An Introductory Essay

Excerpt

Sadly this introduction to the novels of Walter Scott which represents a life-long interest of Douglas Jefferson, Professor Emeritus at the University of Leeds is published after his death in January 2001.

Douglas Jefferson will be remembered by generations of students as a teacher who combined great passion for literature with shrewd critical judgement. He was concerned to define the particular qualities and strengths of a writer and he believed that the purpose of the critic was to elucidate literary texts and to make them accessible to a wide audience. This work on the novels of Scott is a fitting testimony to his achievement.
