Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet was a Scottish novelist, poet, and playwright. He introduced the genre of historical writing and is considered to be its greatest practitioner. Born in Edinburgh Scotland, Scott was the first modern English writer to have an international career, his works enjoying wide readership across Europe, North America and Australia. Professionally a legal administrator and advocate, he worked as a clerk in the Court of Session and Sheriff Deputy of Selkirkshire. However, despite having a career in law, he soon realized his true calling in writing. Scott made his foray into literary world as a poet, earning critical acclaim and popularity. He ventured forth and tried the less-explored genre of prose fiction, which was then considered inferior to poetry. His first novel, ‘Waverley’ was widely appreciated and led to many more novels by him. What gave him the edge over other writers was his brilliant storytelling technique. Furthermore, his deep knowledge of Scottish history and society and his acute observation enabled him to rightfully depict the same in his writings.
