This critical edition of Scott's Minstrelsy presents a seminal 19th-century work for a 21st-century audience
This 3-volume edition of Scott's Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border (1802-3) presents nearly 100 poems and songs, many of them containing fascinating narratives of death, murder and abductions. It also includes his extended essays on history and the supernatural, in which Scott gives the background to the ballad narratives opening up a window into the life of the Scottish Borders around 1800. The Edinburgh edition presents Scott's original text in a new critical way and tells the stories behind the stories, naming the sources and singers, identifying places and bringing alive the cultural background. For the first time, the extraordinary vitality of the Scottish culture and narratives in the Borders is brought to light through the publication of this iconic text in Scotland's cultural memory.
