Going back to the original manuscripts, a team of scholars has uncovered what Scott originally wrote and intended his public to read before errors, misreadings and expurgations crept in during production. Set against the backdrop of the Popish Plot to overturn Charles II, Peveril of the Peak explores the on-going tensions between Cavalier and Puritan loyalties during the fraught years of Restoration England. Ranging from Derbyshire to the Isle of Man and culminating in London, it is a novel which interweaves political intrigue, personal responsibilities and the ways in which the forces of history are played ou

Review:

The standard of work is to be commended highly. It is also a testament to the perseverance of the editor herself in producing such an exemplary volume to a new readership. -- Anthony Mandal Studies in Hogg and His World Reviving... a seldom remembered novel, the editor invite[s] us to share [her] vision of an energetically creative Scott whose imaginative works can still surprise and affect us. -- Regina Hewitt Scottish Literary Review The standard of work is to be commended highly.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'Here is a plot without a drop of blood; and all the elements of a romance, without its conclusion', comments the King towards the end of Scott's longest, and arguably most intriguing, novel. Set against the backdrop of the Popish Plot to overturn Charles II, Peveril of the Peak explores the on-going tensions between Cavalier and Puritan loyalties during the fraught years of Restoration England. Ranging from Derbyshire to the Isle of Man and culminating in London it is a novel which interweaves political intrigue, personal responsibilities and the ways in which the forces of history are played out in the struggles of individual human lives. But its true subject is perhaps the role of narration and the limits of storytelling itself. In this, the first scholarly edition of Peveril, Alison Lumsden recovers a lost novel.
