His name and image are everywhere - from Bank of Scotland fivers to the bizarre monument in Edinburgh's city centre. Scott-land presumes that the reader will have only a hazy awareness of Sir Walter Scott, and, although Stuart Kelly will offer insights into Scott's work and biography, this is emphatically not a conventional literary biography, nor is it a critical study. Partly a surreptitious autobiography, his examination of Scott's legacy and character come to change his own thoughts on writing, reveiwing, being Scottish and being human.
