The Novels of Walter Scott and his Literary Relations is an innovative critical study which, for the first time, examines Scott through the filter of his female contemporaries. Examining works by Brunton, Ferrier and Johnstone, the book explores the ways in which their work interacts with Scott's fiction, casting questions about desire, the heroine and the love-plot in a new, more human light. Of particular interest are the accounts of the hero, and, above all, that fundamental subject of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century British culture: the union. In focusing on the works of these critically neglected female authors, the book explores the national tale as a genre and rethinks Scott's contribution to this genre.
