The course of life to which Mary and her little retinue were doomed, was in the last degree secluded and lonely, varied only as the weather permitted or rendered impossible the Queen's usual walk in the garden, or on the battlements. -from The Abbot They were the literary phenomenon of their time: The Waverly novels, 48 volumes set in fanciful re-creations of the Scottish Highlands (and other lands) of centuries past, published between 1814 and 1831 and devoured by a reading public hungry for these sweeping, interconnected melodramas. The series popularized historical fiction, though they're also abundant in astute political and social commentary. The Abbot, Volume 21 of Waverly, follows directly on from The Monastery (Vol. 18) and features a vividly depicted Mary Queen of Scots during the time of her imprisonment at Lochleven Castle. Scottish novelist and poet SIR WALTER SCOTT (1771-1832), a literary hero of his native land, turned to writing only when his law practice and printing business foundered. Among his most beloved works are The Lady of the Lake (1810), Rob Roy (1818), and Ivanhoe (Waverly Vols. 16 and 17) (1820).

INTRODUCTION The Jacobite enthusiasm of the eighteenth century, particularly during the rebellion of 1745, afforded a theme, perhaps the finest that could be selected for fictitious composition, founded upon real or probable incident. This civil war and its remarkable events were remembered by the existing generation without any degree of the bitterness of spirit which seldom fails to attend internal dissension. The Highlanders, who formed the principal strength of Charles Edward's army, were an ancient and high-spirited race, peculiar in their habits of war and of peace, brave to romance, and exhibiting a character turning upon points more adapted to poetry than to the prose of real life. Their prince, young, valiant, patient of fatigue, and despising danger, heading his army on foot in the most toilsome marches, and defeating a regular force in three battles—all these were circumstances fascinating to the imagination, and might well be supposed to seduce young and enthusiastic minds to the cause in which they were found united, although wisdom and reason frowned upon the enterprise. The adventurous prince, as is well known, proved to be one of those personages who distinguish themselves during some single and extraordinarily brilliant period of their lives, like the course of a shooting-star, at which men wonder, as well on account of the briefness, as the brilliancy of its splendour. A long tract of darkness overshadowed the subsequent life of a man who, in his youth, showed himself so capable of great undertakings; and, without the painful task of tracing his course farther, we may say the latter pursuits and habits of this unhappy prince are those painfully evincing a broken heart, which seeks refuge from its own thoughts in sordid enjoyments.

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet, he was the first to attain international popularity in his lifetime and many of his novels have become classics. Scott achieved international fame through his poetry, but he wanted to write novels documenting his research into the oral tradition of the Scottish Borders. This type of literature was considered inferior to poetry as a vehicle for expressing historical epics. Hence, he started writing the Waverley Novels anonymously. As more and more novels were published he became known as "The Author of Waverley" or "The Wizard of the North." Amongst some circles it was an open secret that Scott was the author, but he maintained the facade. In 1815 he dined George, Prince Regent, who wanted to meet the "Author of Waverley." This volume contains the second three Waverley Novels: Rob Roy gives us a first-hand view of Scottish Highland and Lowland society, and the way the regions viewed each other just before the 1715 Jacobite Rising. Frank Osbaldistone is the protagonist and having quarrelled with his father, he is sent to stay with his uncle, in Northumberland. This is a book filled with mystery, suspense, swashbuckling adventure and romance. In this novel, there is an aura of mystery around Rob Roy and a most beautiful romance with Diana who is a fascinating and captivating character. Ivanhoe is based in Medieval England and is the ultimate chivalric novel. Ivanhoe, is an ally of Richard-the-Lion-Hearted and returns from the Crusades to reclaim his inheritance. Chivalry, romance, knights in shining armour, the plight of Jews, mystery, suspense, Robin Hood and his merry men, castles complete with jesters, battles, damsels in distress, evil conspirators, jousts, humour. It's all there. Kenilworth is a romantic story, the chief character being Amy Robsart who is married to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, however he wants to keep the marriage a secret. He is determined to win the heart of the Virgin Queen Elizabeth and his evil genius is unleashed when she comes to stay at Kenilworth Castle in 1575.
