Special issue of Scottish Literary Review on Walter Scott

Scottish Literary Review has released a special issue, 7.2 (2015), on Sir Walter Scott. From the journal:
“No Scottish writer at the present moment surpasses the literary critical mass of Walter Scott. The spike in attention to ‘Scottish Romanticism’ and the internationally recognised editorial project that has been the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels of Walter Scott, now complete in thirty volumes, have undoubtedly provided strong impetuses for the critically sophisticated rediscovery of Scott from the latter part of the twentieth century onwards. The insights arising from these activities have swept aside earlier, badly theorised certainties about Scott’s ‘failure’ to be a true Romantic, or his writing being merely unionist propaganda or, indeed, his creation of a dangerously irresponsible ‘Scottland.’”
