9780748685639: William Wallace
Reseña del editor:

This book investigates the impact of the ever-changing story of William Wallace on Scottish national identity. This updated edition of Graeme Morton's William Wallace: Man and Myth looks at the Scottish warrior through the kaleidoscopic lens of 'the national tale'. Here, Morton explores the mechanism by which Wallace's afterlife has come to shape Scotland's national identity. Morton goes back to original (and unreliable) sources and chronicles, showing how Wallace was transformed into the patriotic Protestant of the Reformation, the romantic 19th-century Scottish hero and Chief, and ultimately a British national symbol, far-removed from his early reputation as a blood-thirsty patriot. A stone likeness was first erected in 1814, a national monument completed in 1869, and innumerable geological sites are associated with his life and legacy. Today 'memory' occurs also in print/books and, more recently in new technologies and the national stereotypes of the Hollywood machine. As an investigation of Wallace's influence through history, this book extends, and nuances, our view of the man by looking at him through the concept of a national narrative, as a complex national mosaic and in equal measure personal hallucination as much as historical reality. It reappraises William Wallace as a national figure. It explores Wallace variously as: A Protestant, A Scottish Chief, A Romantic Hero, a Hollywood Hero. It examines Scotland's obsession with the need for a national hero.

Reseña del editor:

This book investigates the impact of the ever-changing story of William Wallace on Scottish national identity. Freed from the historian's bedrock of empiricism by a lack of corroborative sources, the biography of this short-lived late-medieval patriot has long been incorporated into the ideology of nationalism. It is to explain this assimilation, and to deconstruct the myriad ways that Wallace's biography has been endlessly refreshed as a national narrative, over many generations, that forms this investigation. William Wallace: A National Tale examines the elision of Wallace's after-life into narrative ascendency, dominating the ideology and politics of nationalism in Scotland. This narrative is conceptualised as the national tale, a term taken out of its literary moorings to scrutinise how the personal biography of a medieval patriot has been evoked and presented as the nation's biography over seven centuries of time. Through the verse of Blind Harry, the romance of Jane Porter, to the historical imaginations of Braveheart and Brave, Scotland's national tale has been forged. This is a fresh, engaging and timely exploration into Wallace's hold over Scotland's national mythology. It reappraises William Wallace as a national figure. It explores Wallace variously as: A Protestant, A Scottish Chief, A Romantic Hero, and a Hollywood Hero. It examines Scotland's obsession with the need for a national hero.
