Sir Walter Scott

Sir Walter Scott (1771 – 1832) was a Scottish novelist, playwright and poet. He is notable for being the first British author that gained an international reputation during his lifetime. Although the romanticism of his historic fiction later fell out of favour with critics, his major novels, such as 'Rob Roy' and 'Ivanhoe', are acknowledged as classic works of literature.
