Introduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent at Canterbury Set in the reign of Richard I, Coeur de Lion, Ivanhoe is packed with memorable incidents - sieges, ambushes and combats - and equally memorable character s: Cedric of Rotherwood, the die-hard Saxon; his ward Rowena; the fierce Te mplar knight, Sir Brian de Bois-Gilbert; the Jew, Isaac of York, and his be autiful, spirited daughter Rebecca; Wamba and Gurth, jester and swineherd r espectively. Scott explores the conflicts between the Crown and the powerfu l Barons, between the Norman overlords and the conquered Saxons, and betwee n Richard and his scheming brother, Prince John. At the same time he brings into the novel the legendary Robin Hood and his band, and creates a brilli ant, colourful account of the age of chivalry with all its elaborate ritual s and costumes and its values of honour and personal glory.
