‘Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border’
Edited by Sigrid Rieuwerts
This critical edition of Scott’s Minstrelsy presents a seminal 19th-century work for a 21st-century audience The second volume in this three volume set includes the full text of the ballads from the 1803, 1806, 1810 and 1812 editions with supplementary editorial notes, summaries, emendations, revisions and remarks. Each ballad is discussed intensively, and has been supplemented by extensive biographical and bibliographical material. Special consideration has been given to Scandinavian cognates and to the impact of the Minstrelsy in Germany through the study of its reception and translation during Scott’s lifetime.
Professor Sigrid Rieuwerts is Reader in the Department of English and Linguistics (British Studies) at Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz.
