    Kindle Walter Scott × Kindle Ivanhoe ePUB Õ × alternate history.co ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookI believe Ivanhoe just misses being a great novel for two reasons First of all its characters although not without subtlety lack depth The exception to the rule is the “Jewess” Rebecca Secondly Scott’s style—at least as demonstrated here—suffers from a wordiness that continually dissipates the novel’s power It is nevertheless an impressive achievement original in conception rich in themes formidable in architecture and powerful in its effects

    Kindle Walter Scott × Kindle Ivanhoe ePUB Õ × alternate history.co ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookIn Ivanhoe Scott skillfully undermines the alienating characteristics of the medieval gothic while taking advantage of its familiarity to and popularity with nineteenth century audiences Although containing elements reminiscent of the earlier gothic such as the corruption and intrigue of religious orders the madness of Ulrica and the burning alive of Front de Beouf in his castle it also pokes fun at some of the wilder elements of this genre the resurrected phantom of Athelstane for instance turns out to be uite alive and in search of a decent meal Scott is clear in his rejection of supernatural devices and rather than the scenes of emotional breakdown and overwhelming passion common in earlier gothics his characters by and large behave with the rationality and self control that wo

    Kindle Walter Scott × Kindle Ivanhoe ePUB Õ × alternate history.co ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookIt is hard to know what to say about Ivanhoe It is part Robin Hood style adventure part history and full of thematic richness I was surprised that Ivanhoe himself figures into this tale somewhat sporadically There are many characters who receive in depth development and the Jewess Rebecca is fully developed than the heroine Rowena The attitudes toward Jews in the novel make one uncomfortable in the same way that you feel when reading The Merchant of Venice It is obvious that Scott himself does not sanction this view of Jews but even the characters who admire and are helped by Rebecca make comments regard

    Kindle Walter Scott × Kindle Ivanhoe ePUB Õ × alternate history.co ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookNote March 17 2014 I posted this review some time ago but just finished tweaking the language in one sentence to clarify a thoughtObviously this novel won't be every reader's cup of tea the author's 19th century diction will be too much of a hurdle for some those who define novels of action and adventure as shallow will consider it beneath them and those who want non stop action will be bored by Scott's serious effort to depict the life and culture of his medieval setting But those who appreciate adventure and romance in a well realized setting and aren't put off by big words and involved syntax will find this a genuinely rewarding read Ivanhoe is a uintessentially Romantic novel and that school stressed appeal to the reader's emotions rather than or at least so than their intellects But this does not mean it's devoid of a philosophical or moral point of view Novels of ac
