This study of Sir Walter Scott is the fruit of two kinds of investigation pursued cuncurrently for over twenty years: first into the genius of Scott as a Master in fiction, second into the attitude of the adolescent towards him. The writer has tried, though a teacher; to put forward suggestions rather than dogmatic conclusions, following in this method of Professor Bradley. If in the introductory and the concluding sections the demands of the writer are pitched somewhat low, the dual nature of his investigations must be held responsible: he has tried to get down to the level of the adolescent and, beginning there to rise to the height of considered criticism.
