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 Talisman is set in the Middle East during the end of the Third Crusade, a departure from Scott’s more typical locations, Scotland and England. This novel is just as full of political intrigue, dealing with Saladin and Richard the Lionheart while following a fictional Scottish knight. This edition of Scott’s The Talisman is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Scott, his life and work.
