First published in 1922, this volume draws together a broad selection of Sir Walter Scott's poetry. The selection was made by A. Hamilton Thompson, as part of the Selections from English Romantic Poetry series, with the intention of capturing Scott's unique qualities and displaying the characteristic genius of his verse. Owing to the narrative basis of much of the poetry this was inevitably a difficult process, but where passages have been included from longer poems detailed summaries are given in the extensive notes at the end of the book. These notes also provide explanations of difficult areas within the volumes and are combined with a detailed introduction to provide a consummately edited text that will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in Scott's poetry.
