The Fortunes of Nigel

£24.99

Product description

Published in 2004 by Edinburgh University Press. Volume 13 of the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels, originally published in 1822.

Set at the end of the reign of James VI and I, The Fortunes of Nigel sits among Walter Scott's richest creations in political insight, range of characterisation and linguistic virtuosity.Well versed in the political literature of the period, Scott drew a detailed picture of London in the early 17th century while charting the effects of Scottish influx into the English capital: the ambitions and fears of the incomers and the suspicion they aroused. The complex web of political (and sexual) intrigue, and especially of all-important financial dealings and double-dealings, is traced with a master's hand. Steeped in Jacobean drama, this tale shows Scott revelling in the linguistic riches of the age.

This book is in very good condition throughout. Unclipped dust jacket has a small (1cm) closed tear.
