I recall reading Ivanhoe in my early adolescent years. I was at that time interested in reading every fictional novel covering the history of England, from the time of Roman-Celtic conflicts up until the story of “Bonnie Prince Charlie.” Looking back I would characterize almost all of those books as romance novels for teenage boys. Not being by Walter Scott, I imagine that most of them are no longer even in print.

So I wonder a great deal just how much Ivanhoe will now appeal to me. That and I had forgotten just how long that book is. So I am not sure that I will not make do this month with just watching the film again.
