Show Summary Details


The Siege of Malta and Bizarro by Walter Scott are preserved principally in the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library. Substantial extracts from The Siege of Malta were included in Donald Sultana's detailed description of the work and the circumstances of its composition, ‘The Siege of Malta’ Rediscovered. Unlike The Siege of Malta, Bizarro has remained wholly unpublished. The Siege of Malta and Bizarro are the last two products of the creative urge that so daunted Iain Crichton Smith in 1971. They are offered to scholars and general readers for their enlightenment and enjoyment, in the belief that the works will be found helpful as they seek to understand more fully the significances personal, national and international of the phenomenon that was and is Sir Walter Scott.
