Read & Download Ivanhoe By Walter Scott Free download Ivanhoe By Walter Scott ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Walter Scott Ü 9 Free download Hailed by Victor Hugo as 'the real epic of our age' Ivanhoe was an immensely popular bestseller when first published in 1819 The book inspired literary imitations as well as paintings dramatizations and even operas Now Sir Walter Scott's sweeping romance of medieval England has prompted a lavish new television production In the twelfth century Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe returns home to England from the Third Crusade to claim his inheritance and I believe Ivanhoe just misses being a great novel for two reasons First of all its characters although not without subtlety lack depth The exception to the rule is the Jewess Rebecca Secondly Scott s style at least as demonstrated here suffers from a wordiness that continually dissipates the novel s power It is nevertheless an impressive achievement original in conception rich in themes formidable in architecture and powerful in its effects
