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'. “Hearken” he Brian de Bois Guilbert said “Rebecca; I have hitherto spoken mildly to thee but now my language shall be that of a conueror Thou art the captive of my bow and spear—subject to my will by the laws of all nations; nor will I abate an inch of my right or abstain from taking by violence what thou refusest to entreaty or necessity”“Stand back” said Rebecca—“which portion of “no” dost thou not comprehend Kindly desist from thou crapulous Trumpery posthaste”Some of the above uotes hath indeed been tampered with from Sir Walter Scott’s original text Apologies to all purists Honestly I cannot stand that longwinded de Bois Guilbert What a silly bunt as Eric Idle would sayBrian de Bois Guilbert and poor RebeccaTook me one month19 days to read this audio book I would have read it faster if it had been compelling but Ivanhoe is not an easy book to read the olde English dialogue takes getting used to and while some of it is uite entertaining it often drags especially when that damned de Bois Guilbert is delivering his interminable gabbleIt is hard to summarize what the novel is about as it is so fragmented Set in the 12th century the novel sort of follows Wilfred Ivanhoe as he returns from the Holy Land after the Third Crusade has ended He soon entered a jousting tournament and jousted the asses off the other competitors Ivanhoe wins the tournament but is gravely injured after his foes ganged up on him; fortunately a mysterious Black Knight shows up to aid him He is then taken to Rebecca the Jewess Ivanhoe his Dad Rebecca and others are soon kidnapped by dastardly Norman Maurice de Bracy a friend of the verbal diarrhea afflicted de Bois Guilbert They are taken to Toruilstone the castle of Front de Boeuf another antagonist The Black Knight soon comes to the rescue with the help of the sharp shootin’ Robin Hood Friar Tuck and many other hipster outlaw types Many events follow and await your discoveryThe Black Knight though he retains both arms in this bookOK now I am going to get medieval on this book Actually on reflection I uite like Ivanhoe though I was often frustrated when it grinds to a halt shut up de Bois Guilbert By the end I felt it definitely outstayed its welcome I am surprised we don’t see that much of the eponymous hero he does not show up until page 50 or so after his jousting injuries he disappears from the narrative for many pages only to become active again towards the end His climactic battle with that damn de Bois Guilbert is a disappointment and very WTF WilfredSir Walter Scott's prose is a thing pf beauty and I even like the olde English once I got used to it The story while fragmented is good and not hard to follow My only complaint is that for a “Romance” as in “a medieval tale dealing with a hero of chivalry” not a story of smooches and heartbreaks it is not very thrilling Sir Walter does write very good fight scenes but those are too few and far between to effectively liven up the narrative There is just too much dialogue and that damn de Bois Guilbert just goes on and on and on repeating himself in his attempt to get into poor Rebecca’s pants Apart from him the characterization is generally very good I particularly like Wamba the jester and Robin Hood especially when he is showing off The humorous bits work for me but again there is too little of themI can’t really recommend Ivanhoe personally I will stick to Alexandre Dumas for medieval badasseryNotes• The Normans and the Saxons have an acrimonious relationship but they agree on one thing their disdain for the Jews The most put upon characters in the book• Richard the Lionheart really lives up to his name and seems to enjoy ass kicking than ruling the land• Audiobook from Librivox read by various readers some are pretty good some are not so good but bearable Whatchoo want for free ehuotes “I pray thee uncle” answered the Jester “let my folly for once protect my roguery I did but make a mistake between my right hand and my left; and he might have pardoned a greater who took a fool for his counsellor and guide”Wamba is the best “And now” said Locksley “I will crave your Grace’s permission to plant such a mark as is used in the North Country; and welcome every brave yeoman who shall try a shot at it to win a smile from the bonny lass he loves best” “Formed in the best proportions of her sex Rowena was tall in stature yet not so much so as to attract observation on account of superior height Her complexion was exuisitely fair but the noble cast of her head and features prevented the insipidity which sometimes attaches to fair beauties Her clear blue eye which sat enshrined beneath a graceful eyebrow of brown sufficiently marked to give expression to the forehead seemed capable to kindle as well as melt to command as well as to beseech” etc That is the most elaborate description of a woman I have ever seen “To all true English hearts and to the confusion of foreign tyrants”Here is a de Bois Guilbert special “No damsel” said the proud Templar springing up “thou shalt not thus impose on me—if I renounce present fame and future ambition I renounce it for thy sake and we will escape in company Listen to me Rebecca” he said again softening his tone; “England—Europe—is not the world There are spheres in which we may act ample enough even for my ambition We will go to Palestine where Conrade Maruis of Montserrat is my friend—a friend free as myself from the doting scruples which fetter our free born reason—rather with Saladin will we league ourselves than endure the scorn of the bigots whom we contemn—I will form new paths to greatness” he continued again traversing the room with hasty strides—“Europe shall hear the loud step of him she has driven from her sons—Not the millions whom her crusaders send to slaughter can do so much to defend Palestine—not the sabres of the thousands and ten thousands of Saracens can hew their way so deep into that land for which nations are striving as the strength and policy of me and those brethren who in despite of yonder old bigot will adhere to me in good and evil Thou shalt be a ueen Rebecca—on Mount Carmel shall we pitch the throne which my valour will gain for you and I will exchange my long desired batoon for a sceptre” STFU

I have decided to put down this book and not finish it 23 of the way in the reason being that while it was interesting to read about the old times of knights tournaments and great battles at castles it wasn't in any way interesting enough for me to keep on reading I feel like being this far in I've already gotten out of the story what I possibly could and I don't really care about how everything's going to end Funnily enough I was originally under the impression that this was going to be a children' story written in a somewhat easily accessible language Turned out I was completely wrong It's a classic story for adults written in a rather dense 1820s language Maybe my disappointment is part of the reason why I don't really feel like finishing it

Walter ScottIvanhoe is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott first published in 1820 in three volumes and subtitled A Romance At the time it was written it represented a shift by Scott away from

novels Ivanhoe is the story of one of the remaining Saxon noble families at a time when the nobility in England was overwhelmingly Norman It follows the Saxon protagonist Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe who is out of favour with his father for his allegiance to the Norman king Richard the Lionheart The story is set in 1194 after the failure of the Third Crusade when many of the Crusaders were still

قالبی را که ایشان برای این سبک از ادبیات داستانی، به‌ کار بسته، تا به امروز از آن قالب پیروی شده‌ است؛ اشعار، و رمان‌های معروف به «وِیورلی» ایشان، به بازگویی رخدادهای هیجان انگیز، در باره ی تاریخ میهن اش می‌پردازند، و سایر رمان‌های ایشان، به بریتانیا، و فرانسه ی دوران سده های میانه ی میلادی برمی‌گردند، که شخصیت‌های آنها را «شاهان»، «ملکه‌ ها»، «مردان سیاسی»، «مزرعه‌ داران»، «گدایان»، و «راهزنان»، شکل می‌دهندوالتر اسکات ویلفرد آیوانهو، پسر سدریک، یکی از اشراف ساکسون، به لیدی راونا، دختری تحت قیمومت پدرش، و از اسلاف آلفرد شاه، دلباخته، ولی سدریک، که طرفدار پر و پا قرص بازگشت نژاد ساکسون به سلطنت انگلستان است، می‌اندیشد که با دادن «راونا» به یکی ساکسونها، که خون پادشان در رگهایش جاری ست، به هدف خود خواهد رسید؛ او که از عشق دو جوان، به یکدیگر، بسیار خشمگین شده است، پسرش را تبعید می‌کند؛ آیونهو به همراه «ریچارد شیردل»، به جنگهای صلیبی می‌رود، و دیری نمی‌گذرد، که احترام و محبت ریچارد را به خود جلب می‌کندپرنس جان، در غیاب برادر، درصدد برمی‌آید، که بر تخت و تاج دست یابد؛ این رخداد همانند همیشه، برای والتر اسکات، بهانه ی خلق رخدادهای درخشانی می‌شود؛ مسابقه ی بزرگ «آشبی دولازوش» که در آن آیونهو، پیشاپیش ریچارد، تمام شهسواران پرنس جان، و از جمله «سر بریاند دوبوا گیلبر»، شهسوار سرسخت پرستشگاه، و «سر رجینالد گاو پیشانی» را شکست می‌دهد، قابل توجه است؛ همچنین باید به ماجرای یورش به قلعه ی «تورکیلستون» اشاره کرد، که در آن یورش، آیونهو زخمی می‌شود؛ سدریک، راونا، آتلستان، اسحاق یورکی یهودی، و دختر با شهامتش ربکا، به دست اشراف نورمان، زندانی شده‌ اند؛ اما پس از نبردی سخت، گروهی از راهزنها و ساکسونها، که «رابین هود لاکسلی» افسانه‌ ای، و ریچارد شاه، بر آنها فرمان می‌رانند، قلعه را بازپس می‌گیرند؛ اولریش ساکسون پیر که محبوبه ی قاتل پدرش شده است، و با افشاندن بذر نفاق میان نورمانها، انتقام خود را گرفته است، قلعه را آتش می‌زند؛ زندانیان آزاد می‌شوند، ولی «بواگیلبر» که دلباخته ی ربکا شده، او را با خود به «تمپلستو» می‌برد؛ چون دختر جوان، عشق شهسوار پرستشگاه را نمی‌پذیرد؛ مرد نیز او را به جادوگری متهم می‌کند؛ خوشبختانه آیوانهو، که در دوئلی با بواگیلبر روبرو می‌شود، دختر جوان را آزاد می‌کندآیوانهو با «لیدی راونا» ازدواج می‌کند و ربکا، چون کاری دیگر از دستش برنمی‌آید، به همراه پدر خویش انگلستان را ترک می‌کند؛ در میان شخصیتهای درجه دوم، باید به «رابین هود»، برادر تاک راهب سرباز، وامبای دلقک، و اسحاق یهودی، که به شیلاک شکسپیر شباهت دارد، و در وجودش سودای پول، و عشق ابدی، باهم در جدال هستند، اشاره کرد این رمان در اروپا با موفقیت روبرو شد؛ آیونهو همراه با کوئنتین دوروارد منشأ موج رمان تاریخی به شمار می‌رود، که نتایج تتبع تاریخی را به زنده‌ ترین منابع تخیل پیوند می‌زند؛ تمام تردیدهایی که در مورد تتبع تاریخی بتوان ابراز داشت، ابداً به موفقیت اثر لطمه وارد نمی‌آورد، زیرا تازگی سبک، همه‌ جا آشکار است والتر اسکات، چنانکه خود در تقدیم‌نامه ی اثر اعلام می‌دارد، تنها قصد داشته، که رنگ تاریخی رمان را حفظ کند؛ او ضمن اکتفا به اینکه چیزی مخالف واقعیت تاریخی در آن راه ندهد در انتخاب جزئیات مقداری آزادی برای خود قائل شده است ا شربیانی
