Nationalism versus Provincialism: A Hypothetical Paradox in Sir Walter Scott's Classical Works

revolutionized all through the works of Sir Scott. Giving due respect and honor, literature of Wordsworth and Coleridge was confined to an extremely narrow circumference that included few patrons and critics. Sir Walter Scott was the first one who broke the shackles and propagated the literary campaign among the public. ''Sir Walter Scott was the Luther of literature. He reformed and he regenerated. To say that he founded a new school is not saying the whole truth ; for there is something narrow in the idea of a school, and his influence has been universal'' (Landon). Scott's poetry like Marmion as well as Lady of the Lake evoked through the minds of common people and off course, developed a resounding response throughout the country with overwhelming enthusiasm. Moreover, for the first time in history, romantic poetry became extensively popular among all ages.

operatic stages. The extraordinary vocal writing—a rare combination of lyricism and virtuosity that requires high levels of musicality and stamina—attracted the best singers of the day. The story itself provided additional interest for audiences: La Donna del Lago was the first opera by a major composer to be based on the works of Sir Walter Scott, whose literary imagination would become hugely influential in the emerging artistic movement we now know as the Romantic era. Scott’s idealized vision of old Scotland was instrumental in the development of a national consciousness among his own people as well as in creating a fantasy landscape for foreigners, a wild and windblown land almost untouched by “civilization.” A staple of the repertoire for several decades after its premiere, La Donna del Lago disappeared from the stage in the mid-19th century, along with many other works of the period. With the recent resurgence of interest in bel canto, these operas are once again being recognized for their sophisticated music and dramatic insights, embraced by a new generation of singers and by audiences around the world.

representation of the Battle of Flodden Field, nor does it claim to be. Given the propaganda spin of the poem, the reader must work harder to decipher fact and fiction. Scott was a leading figure of the Scottish Romantic movement. Romanticism is the use of feelings, emotions, senses and images to convey a work’s deeper meaning. Romanticism does not rely on form and structure, but rather on reaction and detail to tell a story. Marmion, while typifying the Enlightenment historiographical “view that Scotland was ethnically divided between Celt and Teuton” as shown in the description of Celtic Scots and Saxon English, does contain Romantic elements. 60 Scott’s imagery and writing style pulls the reader into the poem, and one can see “St. George’s banner...faded” hoisted in the keep of Norham Castle, hear the creak of the portcullis as Marmion is admitted, taste the food at the king’s banquet, smell the smoke from the Scottish camps, and touch the dying hero. 61

SIR WALTER SCOTT: A DUSTY EXHUMER OF CHRONICLES IN THE LIGHT OF HIS ART OF NARRATION

SIR WALTER SCOTT: A DUSTY EXHUMER OF CHRONICLES IN THE LIGHT OF HIS ART OF NARRATION

Thus it can be inferred from a thorough study of the use of languages by Scott that he provides us with four models of narrative; firstly ordinary English narrative with a few Scotch words, secondly the recorded eighteenth century Scottish speech narrative as in Wandering Willie‟s tale, thirdly the written Scots of uneducated Scotsmen like that of Davie Deans in The Heart of Midlothian and fourthly only barely explored language of the written narrative of an older educated who speaks Scotch informally, in a mixture of Scotch and English. The depiction of these four varieties of language is contributive of his versatility of themes in various novels. Thus Scott makes his characters speak in their own native tongues.

Walter Benjamin e a infância: apontamentos impressionistas sobre sua(s) narrativa(s) a partir de narrativas diversas = Walter Benjamin and childhood: impressionist notes on his narrative(s) from diverse narratives

Palavras-chave – infância; filosofia; culturas infantis; Walter Benjamin ABSTRACT – This article deals with childhood as an object of philosophical reflection on WB suggesting, since his outcome was long before Philippe Aries, being him a precursor author of the current social studies on children which see the child as social actor and as a producer of culture,. The experience of childhood in WB emerges through the work of his childhood memory of toys, children’s books and emotions, but also through his reflections on pedagogy. In his writings on childhood, in the early twentieth century, the present view of the specificity of children’s cultures is affirmed, in which the child is not the miniature of an adult, but the possessor of a very reason, even if it is irrational to our eyes. Thus, in WB, as in Baudelaire, the child is an individual, able to discover or create the ‘new’ opposed to ‘always-equal’, the new as the constant and fascinating (re) discovery of life itself. That aspect which, paradoxically, is also the ‘eternal and immutable’. This article consists of reflections in the light of WB’s texts, by readers and scholars of his work and authors from other areas of knowledge, with whom a dialogue is established from Benjamin’s texts.
