    Epub Walter Scott ↠ Epub Old Mortality eBook ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de mortality mobile, Old Mortality PDFSir Walter Scott goes nasty beyond knights and damsels into a world of religious hatred and sectarian violence that remains relevant than ever todayI read this book as a teenager in the Seventies and what I loved even better than the action adventure and romance was the striking similarities between the culture war of 17th century Scotland and the lingering bitterness in America at the end of the Vietnam era The story of the Protestant uprising in rural Scotland depicts short haired religious Covenanters who despise learning culture pleasure and the arts against long haired aristocratic Cavaliers who despise religion morality and hard work but consider themselves refined and truly civilized When I read the book I felt a deep identification with the Covenanters Not only were they clearly related to the Puritans who founded America but the people they hated foppish decadent arrogant and overly cultured Cavaliers reminded me

    Epub Walter Scott ↠ Epub Old Mortality eBook ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de mortality mobile, Old Mortality PDF Old Mortality is a novel by Sir Walter Scott set in 1679 in south west Scotland Along with The Black Dwarf it forms Scott's Tales of My Landlord Old Mortality was planned as the second volume of the Tales which was originally to consist of four volumes each containing a separate regional tale As the story took hold of Scott's imagination however it expanded to fill three volumes the standard length for a novel The two novels were published together in 1816 Old Mortality is considered by many as one of Scott's best novels I am not one of the many this book just made me tired it made me feel worn out by the end It didn't help that I had just got through The Black Dwarf that almost drove me crazy with the Scottish dialect and it also probably didn't help that we were stranded in a hotel room with our only means of transporation broken down in a truck garage at the time but even in per
