Although Scott based this tale on an old English Ballad (which is printed in the back of the book) and not known history, it's still a jolly good yarn peopled with interesting characters, poison, astrology, treachery and all the well known intrigues of the Court of Elizabeth I/5(25).

A stirring tale of deception and dishonor set in Elizabethan England, with Elizabeth herself playing a prominent supporting role. I never cease to marvel at the quantity, quality and scope of Scott's output. Kenilworth's plot is ingenious, and Scott's evocative prose, albeit formal to a degree not seen today, does it full justice/5.
