It is hard to know what to say about Ivanhoe It is part Robin Hood style adventure part history and full of thematic richness I was surprised that Ivanhoe himself figures into this tale somewhat sporadically There are many characters who receive in depth development and the Jewess Rebecca is fully developed than the heroine Rowena The attitudes toward Jews in the novel make one uncomfortable in the same way that you feel when reading The Merchant of Venice It is obvious that Scott himself does not sanction this view of Jews but even the characters who admire and are helped by Rebecca make comments regarding being defiled by her presence or touch I constantly had to attempt to put myself into the time in uestion and remind myself that this is history and to have written it any other way would have been falseIt is easy to see why Sir Walter Scott was a popular writer in his time and has survived The story is fun in the same way tales of King Arthur and his Knights are The descriptions of the lists and tournaments are vivid portrayals There are plot surprises there is laughter particularly in the forms of a jester and a Thane and there is familiarity in the characters that we have seen time and again from this era Richard the Lion Hearted Robin Hood and his Merry Men and the evil King John

Ls are not those of human beings pitted against other human beings but of man pitted against Nature of man in relation to fate His romance is the romance of hunted men hiding in woods at night of brigs standing out to sea of waves breaking in the moonlight of solitary sands and distant horsemen of violence and suspense' For Henry James 'Scott was a born storyteller Since Shakespeare no writer has created so immense a gallery of portraits'. Sometimes I'm in the middle of complaining to Joanne that some book which I told Joanne before I started was probably going to be boring and stupid is indeed boring and stupid and I plan to complain about it being boring and stupid for the next week because it's also long and Joanne says silly things like Why would you even start a book that you think will be boring and stupid Ivanhoe is why Sometimes I'm wrong I thought Ivanhoe would be boring and stupid but it's a blastFlesh WoundsHere's the test for whether you'll like it have you ever liked any story even just one story with a knight in it If you're not totally immune to knights clanking about flinging gauntlets at each other you should like Ivanhoe It's the apotheosis of knight bashing There are damsels in distress and a terrific response by one of them; a great scheming old crone in a tower; a wicked prince; a thrilling castle siege and note those are usually not thrilling it's just super hard to write large scale battle scenes that work but here you go; mystery knights in black; a lusty brawling priest; even an outlaw bowman dressed in green Is his identity supposed to be a secret Because it's not neither is the Black Knight's If none of those things sound fun to youwell we can still read Mansfield Park togetherUh oh JewsThe one thing I should mention that doesn't sit perfectly with me is sigh here we go again Isaac the Jew And look Scott's major point which he makes again and again is how awful bigotry towards Jews is well was in 1200 He's constantly showing people being dicks to Isaac and then writing things like Man he sure is being a dick to that poor Jew He uses the word bigot like 50 times Buuuuut the fact remains that Isaac is indeed a craven caricature a Barabas so one gets the unsettling impression that Scott is having it both ways I mean Scott actually explains it he's like We've left this poor race no place in society but as money lenders we've constantly oppressed them it's our fault they've become avaricious; we don't allow them to be anything else And you're like ehhhhhh man but didn't you make Isaac up in your own brain I dunno I'm vexed by the portrayal of Isaac I don't get super hater vibes; I kinda suspect Scott is doing his best and it's just sortof an ass headed effort But prospective readers are due a warning depending on your own feelings you may find this totally unobjectionable or incredibly offensive He's a major characterWalter Scott in ContextScott is sometimes called the inventor of historical fiction He's also sometimes called shitty; EM Forster says that To make things happen one after another is his only serious aim Scott can't do characters; he can't even do plots He just presents a series of scenes He has the power to present the outside of a character and to work from the outside to the inside says Pritchett But once inside he discovers only what is generic But then there's David Lodge calling Scott the single Shakespearean talent of the English novel All of these things are hyperbole It's true that characterization is not Scott's strong point lot of archetypes here but everyone's entertaining and memorable enough; it's okay not to be a psychologist Scott's super fun to read and that's greatand
