Scott-land : The Man Who Invented a Nation, Paperback Book

Scott-land : The Man Who Invented a Nation Paperback



His name and image are everywhere - from Bank of Scotland fivers to the bizarre monument in Edinburgh's city centre.

Scott-land presumes that the reader will have only a hazy awareness of Sir Walter Scott, and, although Stuart Kelly will offer insights into Scott's works and biography, this is emphatically not a conventional literary biography, nor is it a critical study.

Partly a surreptitious autobiography - Stuart Kelly was born near Abbotsford - his examination of Scott's legacy and character come to change his own thoughts on writing, reviewing, being Scottish, and being human.
