Sir Walter Scott is considered as the ‘Father of Historical Novel’ in English literature, who represents the love for the revival of the past especially that of the middle ages, in English poetry. In his early years he developed a passion for Ballads and contributed largely to it by publishing a collection of ballads in 1802-1803 - ’Minstrelsy of Scottish Border’. He was better as a story teller rather than a lyric poet. His novels appealed to a wide circle and entirely captured the fancy of the day. This test is designed to asses the familiarity of AP students with the work of this great writer of English literature. This short test is prepared in the multiple choice format, specially designed for students taking AP test in English language
