The new edition of the Waverley Novels is important not just for those interested in Scott and Scottish literature, but also for those in the fields of bibliography, textual criticism and the History of the Book... If any scholar was well placed to establish an 'ideal text' of Waverley, it is Peter Garside... The meticulous care with which the numerous emendations to the texts have been considered makes these volumes a landmark series for modern editing, as well as serving the practical purpose of restoring Scott's texts to their original form. - Fiona Stafford, Scottish Literary ReviewReseña del editor:
The first of the Waverley Novels burst anonymously upon an astonished world in 1814. Its publication marked the emergence of the modern novel in the western world and was to have an influence on the great European writers of the nineteenth century, including Tolstoy, Balzac and Stendhal. Edward Waverley is a young, cultured, but impressionable man whose sensibilities lead to his involvement in the Jacobite Rising of 1745. In his journey into Scotland, down to Derby, and back up again he witnesses the cultural and political geography of Great Britain in all its variety and in a state of political crisis. This edition of Scott's Waverley marks the bicentenary of the first publication of the novel. It presents the authoritatively edited text by Peter Garside for the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels, together with a new Introduction, making the novel readily available to a new generation of readers.
