Sir Walter Scott was a poet, novelist, ballad-collector, critic and man of letters, but is probably most renowned as the founder of the genre of the historical novel, involving tales of gallantry, romance and chivalry. In 1827-28, Scott wrote the framed-tale series entitled “Chronicles of the Canongate” as part of his scheme to pay off the debt of his publishing house. It was the first work of fiction to which Scott put his own name. Comprised of two short stories “The Highland Widow” and “The Two Drovers” and a novella 'The Surgeon's Daughter', this is Scott's only collection of shorter fiction. “Chronicles of the Canongate ” is one of the most significant creations for the 19 century.
