Description
A satire of Victorian admiration for all things medieval, this 1850 work by the author of Vanity Fair and Barry Lyndon is a farcical sequel to Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe, exploring the miserable marriage of Sir Wilfrid to the "icy, faultless, prim" Rowena. W.M. Thackeray reunites Ivanhoe with his first love, Rebecca, claiming they were wrongly separated in the earlier novel, even while the dead come back to life, marriage is exposed as really quite dull, and imperialism is mocked mercilessly. In the foreword, Matthew Sweet praises this novel as "The nearest Victorian Britain ever got to Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
