CHAPTER XI
THE EARLY NINETEENTH CENTURY

legend that he could get from any one who chanced to remember the ancient lore. In 1802 he published Minstrelsy of the Scottish Bordei-, and in 1805, The Lay of the Last Minstrel. Then there was enthusiasm indeed. Men had wandered into distant lands for the new, the strange, the romantic ; but the Lay revealed their own country as its home. Here was a poem which was song, description, dialogue, legend, superstition, chivalry, every-day life,-and all blended into a story told by an ideal story-teller. Scott's listeners were as intent as those of his schooldays had been. There was no more thought of courts and law books. The teller of stories had found his place. He planned a romantic novel, but laid it aside. During the next three years he edited various works, and in the third year he published Marmion. Large sums of money we're coming in from his poems and also from the publishing business, in which he had engaged with some old school friends, and he was free to carry out his dearest wish, to buy the estate of Abbotsford and become one of the " landed gentry."
Scott abandons poetry. In 1812, the year of his removal to Abbotsford, the first two cantos of Childe Hai-old, a brilliant poem in a new vein, came out, written by Lord Byron. The crowd had found a new idol, and Scott's next poem, published in the following year, had much smaller sales than his previous works. Scott brought out another poem, but evidently the fickle public did not care for more of his poetry, and he began to think about the romance which he had planned several years earlier. The result of this thinking was that in 1814 the reading world went wild
