Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

By turns thrilling and comic, Rob Roy contains Scott's most sophisticated treatment of the Scottish Highlands as an imaginary space where the modern and the primitive come together. Newly edited from the `Magnum Opus' text of 1830, this edition includes full explanatory notes and a critical introduction exploring the originality and complexity of Scott's achievement.

Synopsis:

Banished from his father's house, Frank Osbaldistone becomes involved in the conspiracy surrounding the disastrous Jacobite rising of 1715. His adventures take him to "MacGregor's country", across the Highland Line, where he finds cruelty, heartbreak, and some unlikely friends.

About the Author

Ian Duncan is Barbara and Carlisle Moore Professor of English at the University of Oregon.

Along with "Ivanhoe," this is probably Scott's most famous book. I'll agree with the other commentator; it is slow, long and hard to get into. I read a version with out any notes, so I only had the vaguest idea who the Jacobites were. Scott is often credited with founding historical fiction and this books mix of adventure, romance, politics and history is certainly influential, but also not very interesting. I like the Scottish setting, if nothing else. Also, Rob Roy doesn't even show up until about half-way through. The basis for the Liam Neeson (who is Irish) film and a fine cocktail.
