1905. Sir Walter Scott was a master of diverse talents. He was a man of letters, a dedicated historian and historiographer, a well-read translator of foreign texts, and a talented poet. Deriving most of his material from his native Scotland, its history and its legends, Scott invented and mastered what we know today as the historical novel. The Heart of Midlothian was a story of Jeanie Deans's journey to London to appeal on behalf of her sister who has been wrongfully charged with child murder.
