About The Book Quentin Durward In mentioning Quentin Durward for the first time Scott speaks of himself as having been ill, and Peveril as having suffered through it. I propose a good rally, however, he says, and hope it will have a powerful effect. My idea is a Scotch archer in the French Kings guard, tempore Louis XI., the most picturesque of all times. The novel, which is by many considered one of the best of Scotts works, was published in June, 1823. It was coldly received by the British public, though it eventually attained a marvellous popularity. In Paris it created a tremendous sensation, similar to that produced in Edinburgh by the appearance of Waverley. It was Scotts first venture on foreign ground, and the French were delighted to find Louis XI. and Charles the Bold brought to life again at the call of the Wizard of the North. The delineations of these two characters are considered as fine as any in fiction or history. For more eBooks visit www.kartindo.com
