Ivanhoe a Romance: Classic Historical Fiction By Sir Walter Scott

In Ivanhoe, Scott skillfully undermines the alienating characteristics of the medieval gothic while taking advantage of its familiarity to and popularity with nineteenth-century audiences. Although...

Throughout the story, Scott attempts to have his characters behave as modernly as they could without ahistoricism.< Less
