Hey, has anyone read the book Ivanhoe recently?
I last read it as a little kid, so I don't really remember the details - so could someone fill me in on how Sir Walter Scott treated the Jewish characters in the book?
I was watching the movie recently, and it was interesting how good of a portrayal the Jewish characters get. It stands out in a 1950s film, so it would REALLY stand out in an early 19th century British novel!!!
I know the characters were in the book, and were notable that Scott wrote about Jewish rights at ALL, but I just wonder exactly HOW he wrote them - was it as good of a portrayal as the film?
