About the Author:

David Hewitt is Regius Chalmers Professor of English Literature at the University of Aberdeen.

Shining steady light on the organic imagination at work within those mechanical relations, the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels vigorously rebuts Thomas Carlyle's verdict on the man who was a 'novel-manufactory'. Scott emerges once again as a writer of heroic stature."--Professor Kathyrn Sutherland, University of Oxford iThe Times Literary Supplementr
