In 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 would have been regarded as admirable by the author’s contemporaries Throughout the story Scott attempts to have his characters behave as modernly as they could without ahistoricism By avoiding the distasteful areas of superstition madness and popery Scott made it possible for nineteenth century readers to sympathize fully with the actors and to imagine themselves in the characters’ places without uneasiness or mental strainIvanhoe was presented in the overtly fictional voice of the translator Templeton as a medieval account rendered into modern language Historical anachronisms are thus not authorial errors but deliberate attempts to make the text accessible to contemporary readers Scott constructed a debate between Templeton and the likewise fictional antiuary Dr Dryasdust who accuses the translator of “polluting the well of history with modern inventions” Scott replies in the person of Templeton “I may have confused the manners of two or three centuries It is my comfort that errors of this kind escape the general class of readers and that I may share in the ill deserved applause of those architects who in their modern Gothic do not hesitate to introduce without rule or method ornaments proper to different styles and to different periods of art” Scott this warns his audience that Ivanhoe should not be read as an attempt to recreate nor to modernize as Leland did and as Scott had done when he wrote in Middle English a Continuation of the poem Sir Tristem which was intended to be a believable imitation of the medieval text a medieval romance Although Scott was widely read in medieval romances and often alluded to them he did not model Ivanhoe on a particular medieval tale and makes no attempt to imitate an authentic medieval style Neither his language his plotting nor his ideology are or were intended to be genuinely medievalThe plot of Ivanhoe and other of Scott’s works likewise reveals less nostalgia than is often assumed It is commonplace to state as Alice Chandler does in her seminal work A Dream of Order The Medieval Ideal in Nineteenth Century English Literature that Scott’s medievalism “brought to an increasingly urbanized industrialized and atomistic society the vision of a stable and harmonious social order substituting the paternal benevolence of manor and guild for the harshness of city and factory and offering the clear air and open fields of the medieval past in place of the blackening skies of England” While this was indeed a part of the appeal of Scott’s tales it oversimplifies Scott’s complex attitudes toward the Middle Ages and ignores the conclusion with which several of his novels end Scott was far from giving unreserved approval to the medieval past Even in regards to his most sympathetic characters he offers points of criticism In describing the heroic Richard for example he remarked on the “wild spirit of chivalry” which urged the king to risk unreasonable dangers “In the lion hearted king the brilliant but useless character of a knight of romance was in a great measure realized and revived his feats of chivalry furnishing themes for bards and minstrels but affording none of those solid benefits to his country on which history loves to pause and hold up as an example to posterity” Scott goes so far as to imply that the sullen fidelity of the serf Gurth is admirable than the reckless courage and self pleasing and licentious chivalry of the royal Richard; freedom and honor rest for Scott on responsibility and loyalty to the social covenant not on personal gloryWhereas in medieval tales the focus is almost always on individual heroism expressed through valor and strength of arms these ualities play a large but ultimately superficial role in Ivanhoe In the final anticlimactic duel at Rebecca’s trial for example Ivanhoe does not defeat the tempestuous villain by skill; in fact the other characters all agree that Bois Guilbert would certainly have won the contest were he not so conflicted in his feelings for Rebecca that he collapses on the field without being struck by his opponent Beneath the exciting trappings of jousts abductions and political intrigues the central motivating tension of Ivanhoe rests on the disruption of familial relationships and the struggle to restore those relationships to their proper order Even the political struggle between King Richard and Prince John is a fraternal conflict; and Richard recognizes that his royal duties include reconciling Ivanhoe with his father This reconciliatio

Ivanhoe Author Walter ScoLs are not those of human beings pitted against other human beings but of man pitted against Nature of man in relation to fate His romance is the romance of hunted men hiding in woods at night of brigs standing out to sea of waves breaking in the moonlight of solitary sands and distant horsemen of violence and suspense' For Henry James 'Scott was a born storyteller Since Shakespeare no writer has created so immense a gallery of portraits'. Sometimes I'm in the middle of complaining to Joanne that some book which I told Joanne before I started was probably going to be boring and stupid is indeed boring and stupid and I plan to complain about it being boring and stupid for the next week because it's also long and Joanne says silly things like Why would you even start a book that you think will be boring and stupid Ivanhoe is why Sometimes I'm wrong I thought Ivanhoe would be boring and stupid but it's a blastFlesh WoundsHere's the test for whether you'll like it have you ever liked any story even just one story with a knight in it If you're not totally immune to knights clanking about flinging gauntlets at each other you should like Ivanhoe It's the apotheosis of knight bashing There are damsels in distress and a terrific response by one of them; a great scheming old crone in a tower; a wicked prince; a thrilling castle siege and note those are usually not thrilling it's just super hard to write large scale battle scenes that work but here you go; mystery knights in black; a lusty brawling priest; even an outlaw bowman dressed in green Is his identity supposed to be a secret Because it's not neither is the Black Knight's If none of those things sound fun to youwell we can still read Mansfield Park togetherUh oh JewsThe one thing I should mention that doesn't sit perfectly with me is sigh here we go again Isaac the Jew And look Scott's major point which he makes again and again is how awful bigotry towards Jews is well was in 1200 He's constantly showing people being dicks to Isaac and then writing things like Man he sure is being a dick to that poor Jew He uses the word bigot like 50 times Buuuuut the fact remains that Isaac is indeed a craven caricature a Barabas so one gets the unsettling impression that Scott is having it both ways I mean Scott actually explains it he's like We've left this poor race no place in society but as money lenders we've constantly oppressed them it's our fault they've become avaricious; we don't allow them to be anything else And you're like ehhhhhh man but didn't you make Isaac up in your own brain I dunno I'm vexed by the portrayal of Isaac I don't get super hater vibes; I kinda suspect Scott is doing his best and it's just sortof an ass headed effort But prospective readers are due a warning depending on your own feelings you may find this totally unobjectionable or incredibly offensive He's a major characterWalter Scott in ContextScott is sometimes called the inventor of historical fiction He's also sometimes called shitty; EM Forster says that To make things happen one after another is his only serious aim Scott can't do characters; he can't even do plots He just presents a series of scenes He has the power to present the outside of a character and to work from the outside to the inside says Pritchett But once inside he discovers only what is generic But then there's David Lodge calling Scott the single Shakespearean talent of the English novel All of these things are hyperbole It's true that characterization is not Scott's strong point lot of archetypes here but everyone's entertaining and memorable enough; it's okay not to be a psychologist Scott's super fun to read and that's greatand in Central ParkFor some reason Central Park has a statue of him which I went to visit as I read Ivanhoe Here it isOver on the other side in shade so the pic I took from that side doesn't show it at all is his dog He looks like a nice guy doesn't he I like him
