Sir Walter Scott as a Popular Novelist


Walter Allen says hinting to Forster’s ‘Aspects of the Novel’:

“But all that is irrelevant to Scott’s present stature as a novelist; his continued greatness rests on quite other grounds. Without being in the strict sense an historian, he revolutionized the writing of history.”Our purpose of study here is to explore these ‘other grounds’ leading to Scott’s continued popularity and analyse the various qualities present in Scott’s genius which are generally overlooked when he is branded as an historical novelist.

Keywords: historical novel, nineteenth century fiction, popular fiction, walter scott
