9780748605675: Waverley (Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels EUP)

Going back to the original manuscripts, a team of scholars has uncovered what Scott originally wrote and intended his public to read before errors, misreadings and expurgations crept in during production. Edward Waverley is a young, cultured man whose sensibilities lead to his involvement in the Jacobite Rising of 1745. In his journey into Scotland, down to Derby, and back up again, he explores the cultural and political geography of Great Britain. Waverley, or 'tis Sixty Years Since was Scott's first novel, but like its final chapter, 'A Postscript, which should have been a Preface', it appears as one of the last in this series, so that the full weight of experience gained from editing Scott's fiction can be brought to understanding his most influential novel, the one that gave its name to the Wave

Review:

The new edition of the Waverley Novels is important not just for those interested in Scott and Scottish literature, but also for those in the fields of bibliography, textual criticism and the History of the Book... If any scholar was well placed to establish an 'ideal text' of Waverley, it is Peter Garside... The meticulous care with which the numerous emendations to the texts have been considered makes these volumes a landmark series for modern editing, as well as serving the practical purpose of restoring Scott's texts to their original form. -- Fiona Stafford Scottish Literary Review The new edition of the Waverley Novels is important not just for those interested in Scott and Scottish literature, but also for those in the fields of bibliography, textual criticism and the History of the Book...
