Editorial Reviews


“In this lively and engaging book, Gottlieb makes the case for Scott's aptness for an exploration of literary and cultural theory by drawing on the recent revival of Scott studies and by citing Scott's voluminous body of work, his self-consciousness, and his historical significance […] it's remarkably persuasive. This is a book that could be read by advanced undergraduates and all graduate students, even those with little background in Scott or the theorists in question.” ―Adela Pinch, Studies in English Literature: 1500-1900

“At the outset, Gottlieb states that his aim is to provide readers with a ‘greater understanding of the complexities and pleasures of both the Waverley Novels and contemporary theory’. Thanks to the persuasive arguments presented in this study, and the sheer energy and enthusiasm that Gottlieb brings to his subject matter, this goal must be easily realised. Not only does Gottlieb have something genuinely new to offer both Scott scholars and contemporary theorists, his palpable enthusiasm for his subject makes this study a joy to engage with.” - The BARS Review
