In his controversial book, "Scott and Scotland: the Predicament of the Scottish Writer", published in 1936, Edwin Muir raised but did not pursue the question of the effect on Walter Scott of his nation's loss of independence. Scott had an acute awareness of the historical position in which he found himself, making it the theme of all his best work. Picking up where Muir left off, this book sets out to place Scott in his proper historical context. It examines the effect it had on his writing and, in turn, what effect this had on Scotland.
