From the Back Cover

EDITED WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY J. 
H.
ALEXANDER-- Based on the acclaimed Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels-- The first authoritative edition drawn from Scott's original texts-- With a special introduction for the Penguin Classic edition 'No historian's Queen Elizabeth was ever so perfectly a woman as the fictitious Elizabeth of Kenilworth, ' wrote Thomas Hardy.
Scott's magnificent novel re-creates the drama, and the strange mixture of assurance and profound unease of the Age of Elizabeth through the story of Amy Robsart.
A woman of great beauty and integrity, Amy is married to the Earl of Leicester, one of the Queen's favourites, who must keep Amy confined to Cumnor Place and the marriage a secret, or incur royal displeasure.Rich in character, melodrama and romance, Kenilworth (1821) is rivalled only by the great Elizabethan dramas.
Scott amply justified V.
S.
Pritchett's accolade: 'the single Shakespearean talent of the English novel'.
