I conclude this prospectus by returning to a point made at the beginning. The history of historical romance would be astonishingly unlike that of any other genre if radical differences of authorial temperament and circumstance did not enforce a succession of modifications both minor and major. For Scott and most of his younger contemporaries, the historical romance was, above all, a modern version of the epic, hence a heroic and masculine genre preoccupied with the fate of entire societies and but little concerned with individualistic introspection or, reversing the mirror, cosmic questionings.
With these changes of roles the contest between the forces of reaction and innovation shifts from the revolutionary to the imperialistic mode. Significantly for the future of the historical romance in America, what Cooper atfirstprobably meant to be a subsidiary conflict, rather personal and local in interest, comes to life as the struggle between American Whig and Tory never does. The westering frontier was destined to provide successive generations of American historical romancers with their fairest fields (or bloodiest grounds) for conflicts akin to those in Waverley.
Which cannot be paralelld in the page of history and the reader may be permitted to . . be weary of the detaild campaigns in which a single town was lost or relieved since he has seen the fate of empires decided in the conflict of one day. 11 These remarks, from an unfinished essay "On the Present State of Historical Composition" (c. 1807-8), may help explain why Scott lost interest in the novel "recording former events" which he began and abandoned in 1805 and did not conclude until (so it appeared) the Russian campaign had concluded Napoleon's career.
