This companion explores the full breadth of Scott's work, from his early lyrics and poetry, such as The Lay of the Last Minstreland The Lady of the Lake, to the Waverley Novels, and his journal and essays including "Chivalry and Romance." It also delves into Scott's reaction to contemporaries such as Dugald Stewart and Adam Ferguson and explores his experimentation, originality and relationship to Romanticism in order to better understand his permanent and unmistakable place in literary and popular culture. Contributors include Caroline McCracken, Flesher Alexander Dick, and Alison Lumsden.
