About the Book

One of the Waverley books by Walter Scott is the historical fiction Rob Roy (1817). The novel, which is most likely set in 1715, the year of the first Jacobite revolt, makes significant use of the social and economic context of that event while avoiding a direct treatment of it. There are two Rob Roy, which shows how little the character Rob Roy resembles a real-life person. One was alive and bred. The second is a compelling historical tale that is well-written. Although both may be regarded as "legitimate," they serve various needs and interests. The narrative is told by Frank Osbaldistone. He is the son of an English businessman who left his home in the north of England, close to the Scottish border, when he was a young man because he did not share the same religious beliefs as his father or his younger brother and also did not get along well with them. When Frank declines to join his father's prosperous business, his father sends him to live in the long-unseen family home with his uncle and his male cousins. Frank's cousin Rashleigh is given employment by his father in exchange.

About Author

Walter Scott

Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish author, poet, playwright, and historian who lived from 15 August 1771 to 21 September 1832. His narrative poems The Lady of the Lake and Marmion, as well as his novels Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, Waverley, Old Mortality, The Heart of Mid-Lothian, and The Bride of Lammermoor, are still regarded as classics of European and Scottish literature. He had a big impact on both European and American literature. He had a big impact on both European and American literature. He was able to combine his work as a writer and editor with his responsibilities as an advocate, judge, and legal administrator thanks to his day job as the Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire. He served as the longtime president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (1820-1832), a senior member of the Tories in Edinburgh, and a vice president of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. He was also interested in the Highland Society (1827-1829). He was able to create the historical book genre as a prime example of European Romanticism thanks to his historical knowledge and literary talent. On April 22, 1820, he created a baronet "of Abbotsford in the County of Rexburg," Scotland; the title was abolished upon the death of his son in 1847.
