Lawyer, novelist, and son of the Scottish Enlightenment, Scott was a far worldlier man than Coleridge. Although something ofa philosophical historian in the tradition of Montesquieu and Adam Smith, Scott is unlikely ever to have contemplated his subject in terms so abstract and apolitical as those proposed by his metaphysical friend. To him it was of the first importance that he was living in the greatest period of revolutionary and imperialistic conflict which the world had yet known. So significant and urgent were the events of his own time, he argued around 1808, that they blotted out all interest in the past: the momentous revolutions which it has been our lot to witness have not only diminishd the value of history by annihilating as it were the states and kingdoms in whose service it has been employd .
In fiction as in historical fact, the Puritan fathers who figure in Hawthorne's fiction are of basically the same stock and persuasion as the politic Cromwell of Woodstock or the fanatical Balfour of Old Mortality. In his first novel, then, Scott created aflexiblemodel for representing the kind of revolutionary or imperialistic conflict which issues in the overthrow of a heroic society by the modern post-feudal state. This is what, on a more sublunary view than Coleridge's, the "subject" or central theme of historical romances in the Waverley tradition turns out to be.
33 We shall see that Tate himself makes excellent use of these insights in his portrait of Major Lewis Buchan, the "Roman" hero of The Fathers. But Tate would have been the first to acknowledge that in focussing attention on the "lower mythology" by which his characters were guided or misguided in life, he was doing what historical romancers had been doing for over a century. Scott, Cooper, and Hawthorne all understood that the seventeenth-century Puritans would not and probably could not have done what they did, for good and ill, if they had not been "dominated by the lower myth" of the Old Testament Hebrews.
