Sir Walter Scott 'The Pirate'


Recommended Posts

Right, Malachy, the critics do say so. I found it easier to read The Pirate than other works by Scott ... and enjoyed it.


The Shetland connection: That was just the point of which I was a bit disappointed. If you know his account of his "Voyage to Nova Zembla and the Lord knows where ..." that's to say the account of his tour to Shetland with Stevenson, having in mind by whom he was accompanied and with whom he met in Shetland ... and all the "Tohuwabohu" later made around the complex of "Scott's Jarlshof" ... then there is only little of the Shetland connection to be discovered in The Pirate ... ;-)
