Quick Reference

A novel by Sir W. Scott, published 1816. The first of the Tales of My Landlord and published anonymously, the novel's most interesting feature today is Scott's treatment of deformity. At the time of writing, he was preoccupied by the possible influence of Byron's lameness (an affliction also suffered by Scott himself) on his character.
