Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish playwright and poet, known for establishing the historial fiction genre. His notable works include The Lady of the Lake and The Tale of Old Mortality.
Scott wrote a three volume series of historical stories called The Waverly Novels, one of which featured a version of Robin Hood which influenced our modern concept of the hero. In it, the outlaw is portrayed as a nobleman named Locksley. The alias 'Robin of Locksley' is still used to this day.
Scotts work helped anglicise and popularise the word 'glamour' which originated from the old Scottish word 'gramarye', meaning a magic enchantment.
