Quentin Durward pdf
Quentin Durward is a historical novel by Walter Scott, first published in 1823. The story concerns a Scottish archer in the service of the French King Louis XI (1423–1483). The first edition was published in three volumes in London on 17 May 1823 and in Edinburgh two days later. In 1830 Scott provided it with an introduction and notes for the ‘Magnum’ edition where it appeared in two volumes in December 1831 and January 1832.
Quentin Durward Summary
Quentin Durward was composed in a remarkably short space of time. After carrying out some preparatory research towards the end of 1822 Scott began writing in January 1823 and supplied the finishing sentences in response to a request from his coadjutor James Ballantyne on 3 May. His principal source was the Mémoires of Philippe de Comines, but as usual, he adapts historical facts freely in the construction of his fiction: most notably the murder of the Bishop of Liège occurs 14 years before its historical date, and Orleans and his future wife Joan appear as adults rather than young children. He was also inspired by manuscript material deriving from continental journeys by his friend James Skene of Rubislaw.
