As we have seen, Scott himself recognized that romance in its various forms has but a single master plot and cast of characters; and while his anatomy of the genre differs somewhat from Northrop Frye's or Joseph Campbell's, there can be no doubt that he understood the principle of displacement and also that he must have been at least intermittently aware of the romance topoi in his own novels. The quest journey, the hero's trial, and his eventual marriage to the king's daughter - these ancient romance elements are present most obviously and completely in the books that he, Cooper, and Mark Twain wrote for family consumption, and they survive in a recognizable (if often parodic) form in historical romances addressed to a more sophisticated audience.
A second group of Jacobites in Waverley confront the forces of progress across a cultural gulf so wide in so many ways—sectarian, ethnic, and socio-economic - as to appear unbridgeable in a single generation. Whereas Sir Everard and Baron Bradwardine are indulged in anachronistic attitudes and customs, "such as might grace a day of parade," by a society which can afford to regard them as picturesque vestiges of the island's ancient chivalry, Fergus Mac-Ivor's Highland clansmen are the real thing; their blades, though few and old-fashioned, are intact and of good metal.
If my definition suggests that they tip the balance in favor of the defeated and dispossessed party, it does so because I believe that the masterpieces of the genre have tended to be more than commonly sceptical about the blessings of progress, more than averagely honest about the cost of epic colonizations and revolutions. I began this section by quoting Coleridge's definition of "the subject" of the early Waverley novels, a definition perennially useful but nonetheless open to objection because it fails to register that these novels are, after all, about the causes and effects of revolution and imperialism in modern times.
