WALTER SCOTT

Classic Literary Author, Books

Sir Walter Scott (1771 – 1832)

classic book author, sir walter scott, ivanhoeWalter Scott was born in Edinburgh, and survived polio when he was only two years old, but the illness left him lame in his right leg for the rest of his life. He was nursed to health by his grandparents at Sandyknowe and here, learnt many of the stories, myths and legends that were to creep into his later works.

Walter Scott studied law at Edinburgh University and then followed in his father’s footsteps to become a lawyer.

Walter’s started writing at the age of 25, translating works from German. He then became a volunteer in the yeomanry, which led him to meet his future wife and with whom he had five children.

In 1819 he broke away from writing about Scotland and wrote Ivanhoe, a historical romance set in 12th century England. Mark Twain was to later criticise Walter Scott for the romantacisation of battle, and how this ideal was used during the American Civil War.

Sir Walter Scott died at his home in Abbotsford in 1832, and was buried in Dryburgh Abbey.
