Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish novelist, poet, historian, and biographer who is often considered both the inventor and the greatest practitioner of the historical novel. Scott's knowledge of history, and his facility with literary technique, made him a seminal figure in the establishment of the historical novel genre, as well as an exemplar of European literary Romanticism. Scott is always surprising. In Ivanhoe he makes Isaac of York one of the first non-satirical, non-stereotypical Jewish characters in fiction.
