The Bride of Lammermoor Summary

The Bride of Lammermoor by Walter Scott

This is a story of national change and personal tragedy. For Lucy Ashton and Edgar Ravenswood, acts of heroism are thwarted and love is doomed by social, political and historical division. This edition restores the action to the years of uncertainty and political flux before the Union of Scotland and England in 1707, rather than after, as Scott's later revision had placed it.

About Walter Scott

Born and educated in Edinburgh, Walter Scott (1771-1832) published several volumes of poetry and turned down the offer of the laureateship before concentrating on fiction. He is credited with establishing the form of the historical novel.
Kathryn Sutherland is a reader in English at St Anne's College, Oxford. Claire Lamont, Advisory Editor, is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Newcastle.
