Abstract: 5 pages in length. The conflict of Sir Walter Scott's 'Ivanhoe' is clearly between opposing forces that may be conveniently labeled 'good' and 'evil,' in spite of the fact that concepts of these two particular conventional opposing forces vary with regard to time and place. When one attempts to assess Scott's viewpoint in relation to 'Ivanhoe's' good and evil, it becomes easy to see that the author's interpretation does not come wrapped in a neat and tidy package; rather, classifying the forces as seen though his eyes, one must look beyond the obvious notion of good and evil. No additional sources cited.
