The Afterlives of Walter Scott

Memory on the Move

Ann Rigney

  • The phenomenon of Scott's rise and fall is explained from the perspective of cultural memory studies
  • Scott's writings are studied as active ingredients within a broader cultural and social framework and not just as autonomous pieces of literature
  • Includes many hitherto unknown examples from a range of cultural expressions, from theatre to material culture, showing the influence of Scott
  • Richly illustrated with visual materials in a way that 'concretizes' the story being told
