Life of Sir Walter Scott free pdf Excerpt from Life of Sir Walter Scott: With Critical Notices of His Writings In tracing the growth and formation of a mind like Scott's, no characteristic or influential incident ought to be omitted, however trifling it might seem if standing alone. The faculties which first develop themselves in the child, are the receptive and imitative. It is not before the years of mature manhood that the human being asserts an individual character. The workings of infant thought are left in a great measure to be inferred from the persons and scenes which surround the child, from the degree of quickness of apprehension and of reflection that it shows, and from its pretty mimicry of the serious actions of man. The evanescent feelings of that early age retain no place in the memory, and those of observant bystanders are too remote to enter into or appreciate them. These observations are thrown out, in the hope that they may obviate any censure likely to be passed upon the following narrative, on the score of its being at times minute and trifling. They will at least explain to the reader why we have sought to preserve as many traits as possible of the relatives who surrounded the boyhood of the poet. Walter Scott, the father of the poet, was born in 1729. It does not appear that his father, although an enterprising agriculturist, was a wealthy man, and his family was numerous. It is true that the old man was connected with opulent and influential families, but we have been unable to ascertain that they extended the hand of patronage to his sons at their outset in life.
