Walter Scott

(1771-1832)

English Author
The master of historical romances

Born in Edinburgh, Scott developed soon his interest for the old Border tales and ballads. Like Somerset Maugham's father, Scott's own father was a solicitor too. Intending to follow in his father's track, Scott studied Arts and Law at the Edinburgh University, and in 1792 he was called to the bar. In 1797, he married Margaret Charlotte Charpentier, a French woman, with whom he had five children.


After translating some German literature, including a play of Goethe, in 1803, he published Minstrelsy Of The Scottish Border, his first major work.

His fame started with a poem, The Lay Of The Last Minstrel (1805).

Rob Roy (1817) a portrait of one of Scotland's greatest heroes, was his second big success - 10 000 copies were sold in fifteen days.

His world famous Ivanhoe was published in 1819.
