Description - Anne of Geierstein by Sir Walter Scott
This work is set in Central Europe in the 15th century. With this novel Scott concludes the unfinished historical business of "Quentin Durward", working on a larger canvas with broader brush-strokes and generally with mire sombre colours. The novel illustrates the darkening of Scott's historical vision in the final part of his career. it is also a remarkable manifestation of the way in which the scope of his imaginative vision continued to expand even as his physical powers declined.
