About this title


Quentin Durward (1823), Scott's first "European" novel, was an experiment in transferring the historical romance to foreign soil. Fifteenth-century France, the French Revolution, and contemporary Britain all come together in this sharp-eyed novel of political expediency and intrigue. The young Scottish adventurer Quentin Durward embarks upon a dangerous journey through the forest of the Ardennes seeking a name, a partner, and a position in the world. Meanwhile, the machiavellian King Louis XI of France, maneuvers his realm out of the hands of feudal barons and into centralized control--which Scott believed to characterize the modern state. This, the only edition of Quentin Durward available, includes a map of Quentin Durward's journey, an introduction, and comprehensive explanatory notes.

From the Publisher:

Edited, with introduction and notes by Arthur Llewellyn Eno, A.M., instructor in English at the University of Illinois. Includes Historical Background of Quentin Durward, Hints and Questions for the Study of Quentin Durward, Collateral Reading References, Tabular View of Scott's Life and Works.
