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. Marmion is an epic poem Scott wrote about the Battle of Flodden Field. Published in 1808, Scott actually trained with military forces to try to learn the cavalry movements and perfect his descriptions.

About the Author:
