  • "The Black Dwarf is set in the Scottish Borders during the reign of Queen Anne (1702-14). At the centre of the story is Sir Edward Mauley, a dwarf who, having been betrayed in a love affair by his friend Mr Vere, retires in disgust to Mucklestene Muir. There he builds his own lodgings and becomes known to the local country people as a supernatural being who is regularly in contact with the devil and with spirits. His neighbours also believe that the dwarf has unlimited powers over their fortune and fate."@en
  • "By 1816 Scott had written three successful novels and the public was clamoring for more. In a change of direction Scott set out to write four "tales" illustrating the manners and customs of Scotland, to be issued together as Tales of My Landlord. The first of these, The Black Dwarf is a novella set in Liddesdale in the Scottish Borders. It is 1708; in the aftermath of the Union of Scotland and England a group of Jacobites plots the restoration of the Stuart monarchy and Scottish independence. Against this turbulent backdrop of nationalist passions and cross-border feuding, a gothic tale of love and danger unfolds. At its center is the grotesque figure of the mysterious and solitary Black Dwarf who symbolically frees the heroine Isabella Vere from a violent, patriarchal past, and helps her choose a peace-loving Scottish laird as her husband."
  • "Spec. Coll."
  • "Scott's 1816 novella of love and nationalism along the Scottish Borders. Intended as a story about the first - abortive - Jacobite rising of 1708, this story developed into a gothic tale of the supernatural."
  • "Plongeant au coeur d'une Ecosse fantastique faite de légendes, de mystères et de surnaturel, W. Scott dresse dans ce court roman le tableau d'un mystérieux personnage, nain difforme doté d'une force herculéenne et surnaturelle."
