Count Robert of Paris by Walter Scott( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Count Robert of Paris goes further back in time than any other of Scott's novels, to witness the uneasy alliance between the Byzantine empire and the ambitious western leaders of the First Crusade at the end of the eleventh century. The characters in this narrative range from an orang-utan to the historian Anna Comnena, who in the climactic scene encounters in single combat Brenhilda of Aspramonte, the warrior wife of Count Robert, pregnant with his child." "Condemned by Scott's printer as 'altogether a failure', Count Robert of Paris was prepared for publication by his son-in-law J.G. Lockhart and his publisher Robert Cadell. The process involved substantial cutting and re-writing, much of it quite unnecessary. What appeared was a bowdlerised, tamed and tidied version of what Scott had written and dictated. Scott's last full-length novel challenged the susceptibilities of his readers more directly than any other, and in that lay its fault in the eyes of the lesser men who condemned it. This edition is the first to have returned to the surviving portion of the manuscript and the extensive proofs."--Jacket

The siege of Malta and Bizarro by Walter Scott( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Siege of Malta and Bizarro are Scott's final works, written in Malta and Italy at the end of 1831 and the beginning of 1832. Although extracts from The Siege of Malta have been published, this is the first complete edition. Bizarro has not been available in print until now." "The Siege of Malta begins as a novel but ends as a historical account of the extraordinary defence of Malta by the Order of St John of Jerusalem and their Maltese helpers against much larger Muslim forces. It is an epic tale of endurance, resulting in inevitable defeat for some of the Knights, and for the rest, in the most hard-won of victories, setting the scene for the subsequent development of the Maltese nation." "In the novella Bizarro Scott takes up the story of a notorious Calabrian brigand of the early nineteenth century. Scott's fictionalised account draws on his experience of visiting Naples and its surroundings and his earlier knowledge of Neapolitan history to tell a tale of passion, murder and revenge with a level of violence rarely seen in his earlier work. Though incomplete, Bizarro shows Scott had not lost his power to tell a good story in this, his very last piece of fiction."--Jacket
