  • "Lord Nigel Olifaunt's father loaned huge sums of money to King James I of England years before. Nigel now wants the money back, but the royal courtiers will stop at nothing to steal the young lord's wealth. Court intrigue and swashbuckling action, set in the early seventeenth century, are on the agenda in this 1822 work by the master of romantic adventure."

  • "The Fortunes of Nigel is a landmark in Walter Scott's literary oeuvre, full of political insights, fascinating characters, and as always, literary style. Scott draws a fascinating portrait of seventeenth-century London, including political and sexual intrigue, financial and Jacobean drama. - Publisher."
  • "The Fortunes of Nigel (1822) is a novel written by Sir Walter Scott. The hero of the story is Nigel Olifaunt. First sentenceHaving, in the tale of the The Heart of Midlothian, succeeded in some degree in awakening an interest in behalf of one devoid of those accomplishments which belong to a heroine almost by right, I was next tempted to choose a hero upon the same unpromising plan; and as worth of character, goodness of heart, and rectitude of principle, were necessary to one who laid no claim to high birth, romantic sensibility, or any of the usual accomplishments of those who strut through t."@en
  • "Set at the end of the reign of James VI and I, The Fortunes of Nigel is among Walter Scott's richest creations in its political insight, range of characterization, and linguistic virtuosity. Well versed in the political literature of the period, Scott draws a detailed picture of London in the early seventeenth century while charting the effects of the Scottish influx into the English capital, the ambitions and fears of the newcomers, and the suspicion they aroused. The complex web of political (and sexual) intrigue and financial double-dealings are traced with a master's hand. Steeped in Jacobean drama, this tale shows Scott revelling in the linguistic riches of the age."
