Not long after the demise of Napoleon, Sir Walter Scott wrote a hugely successful biography of his infamous contemporary. Feelings for Napoleon were not very different from those nowadays felt towards Hitler. Yet Scott infuriated his reviewers with the ideas he put forward and delighted his readers with the brilliant analysis he put forward from a novelist's point of view. This is a comprehensive annotated edition of the work.

About Elinor Burkett

Sir Walter Scott was one of Britain's most prolific authors who contributed such characters as Ivanhoe to its mythology. The inventor of the page-turning adventure story, his writings paved the way for many bestsellers today. Struck by the freshness of Scott's views on Napoleon, Richard Michaelis has provided the notes to this edition. He teaches at the University of Oxford where he is a member of Hertford College.
