Appreciation of 'Kenilworth'

I have just finished reading 'Kenilworth', which I enjoyed very much. Scott's first novel set outside Scotland, it is a gripping portrayal of the glittering court of Queen Elizabeth I, its ambition and paranoia, and of course features one of the most enduring of historical mysteries, that of the death of Amy Robsart. Scott does play fast and loose with historical fact and chronology,but to good artistic effect. I see that there have not been many comments about the novels of Sir Walter Scott, which I think is a shame. Any Scott fans out there- let's see if we can get something going.
