Going back to the original manuscripts, a team of scholars has uncovered what Scott originally wrote and intended his public to read before errors, misreadings and expurgations crept in during production. Set against the backdrop of the Popish Plot to overturn Charles II, Peveril of the Peakexplores the on-going tensions between Cavalier and Puritan loyalties during the fraught years of Restoration England.Ranging from Derbyshire to the Isle of Man and culminating in London, it is a novel which interweaves political intrigue, personal responsibilities and the ways in which the forces of history are played out in the struggles of individual human lives. But its true subject is perhaps the role ofnarration and the limits of storytelling itself. In this, the first scholarly edition of Peveril of the Peak, Alison Lumsden recovers a lost novel.
