Product Overview

Find Out What Scott Really WroteGoing back to the original manuscripts, a team of scholars has uncovered what Scott originally wrote and intended his public to read before errors, misreadings and expurgations crept in during production.The Edinburgh Edition offers you:* A clean, corrected text* Textual histories* Explanatory notes* Verbal changes from the first-edition text* Full glossariesTitle DescriptionSet at the time of the Third Crusade (1189-92), The Betrothed is the first of Scott's Tales of the Crusaders. The betrothed is Eveline, daughter of a Norman noble, who is a victim of the Crusade in that her intended husband is required by the Church to fulfil his vow to join the war and departs for three years. The full horror of an arranged marriage, and of being a possible prize as men seek to gain possession of her is vividly realised: the heroine is never free; her fate is always determined by the agency of men. Set on the Marches of Wales, it is not just men but differing cultures that strive
