Sir Walter Scott A Character Study by John Patten
Published on the centenary of Scott’s death in 1832, this book makes a new approach to Sir Walter Scott. Part I is an examination of Scott’s character in the light of his famous Journal. Part II briefly surveys the criticism of Scott from his own day to 1932, whilst in Part III the author deals with certain aspects of Scott’s personality, concluding with a well-balanced estimate of his character. Himself a Borderer, Mr. Patten was brought up to believe that Scott was one of the greatest men who ever lived – a claim which his book boldly maintains.
