For Hallowe’en, Prof Penny Fielding will give an online talk for Museums & Galleries Edinburgh about ghosts, visions and prophecies in Scott’s novels and poetry. We will learn how Scott included traditional folklore beliefs in his ballad collection The Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border, and how different kinds of apparitions feature in his novels, including Waverley and The Bride of Lammermoor.
