The father of the historical novel, Sir Walter Scott invented a literary form that has remained popular for over one hundred and fifty years. Infusing his works with romance, action, and suspense, he brought long-gone eras back to life with splendor and spectacle. Set in England just after the Third Crusade, Ivanhoe is the tale of Wilfred, a young Saxon knight, and his love for the royal princess Rowena. With his father against their union, Wilfred embarks on a series of adventures to prove his worth. Soon he finds himself in conflict with the Normans and the Templars and allied with such larger-than-life figures as Robin Hood and Richard the Lionheart. A timeless story of courage, chivalry, and courtly love, Ivanhoe is a grand epic; and its place in classical literature is assured.

Originally published in 1819, this 2009 edition includes an introduction by Sharon Kay Penman, a forward by Regina Marler, a short biography of Sir Walter Scott, notes, glossary, bibliography, index. This is part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum. See Related Items below.
