Sir Walter Scott Denkmal

Unser Reporter Benedikt ist in dieser Woche in Schottland und besucht Sam Scott. Auf seinem Weg in den Holyrood Park kommt er an dem Denkmal für Sir Walter Scott vorbei und macht sich so seine Gedanken über die Entstehungsgeschichte. Mit einem Augenzwinkern erzählt er uns seine Version.

Es war einmal ein Riese, der sich furchtbar langweilte. Seine Frau war ausgegangen, es gab keinen frischen Kuchen im Schrank und sein Freund der Troll war auch nicht gekommen.
Er trat vor sein Haus und sah in die Runde. Weit entfernt in der großen Stadt sprang ihm ein Turm in die Augen. Mit wenigen Riesenschritten stand er vor einer alten ehrwürdigen Kirche.
Er griff nach der Spitze, rüttelte hin und rüttelte her und hatte den Turm in der Hand. Der kleine Pfarrer kam herbei gelaufen, aber was sollte er schon gegen den Riesen tun.
Der Riese lief davon und freute sich über sein Spielzeug.
Dann kamen ihm Zweifel. Was würde seine Frau sagen? Sie wäre sauer, wie schon so oft.
Und es würde auch in der nächsten Zeit keine Kuchen mehr geben. Der Riese leckte genüsslich mit der Zunge über seine Lippen bei dem Gedanken an die Kuchen seiner Frau.
Er sah sich um.
Mittlerweile stand er in der Princes Street in Edinburgh.
Neben ihm leuchtete das Grün des Princes Gardens. Kurz entschlossen setzte er den Turm dort ab und ging Hände reibend und zufrieden nach Hause. Es würde niemand bemerken, dachte er sich.
Genau so muss es wohl gewesen sein.
Sechzig Meter strebt das Denkmal für Sir Walter Scott in den Himmel, über und über mit kleinen gotischen Türmchen und Fenstern mit spitzen Bögen verziert, so als hätte ein Riese einen Kirchturm dort hingesetzt.

Wer ist Sir Walter Scott

Sir Walter Scott Portrait

Sir Walter Scott Portrait von Sir William Allan

Sir Walter Scott war ein Bestsellerautor zu seiner Zeit. Er lebte von 1771 – 1832.
Abenteuergeschichten wie „Ivanhoe“, „Rob Roy“ oder „Waverley“ gehörten zu seinen großen Erfolgsromanen. Er berichtete von edlen Rittern, die um die Gunst ihrer angebeteten Dame kämpften oder erzählte die tränenreiche Geschichte um den schottischen Nationalhelden Rob Roy. Am Denkmal findet man 64 Figuren aus seinen Romanen und der schottischen Geschichte.
Im Mittelpunkt unter dem hoch aufragenden Turm steht zwischen vier Säulen die weiße Marmorstatue des Dichters. Er hat sich zum Schreiben hingesetzt, die Gänsefeder in der Hand und seinen treuen Hund Maida an seiner Seite.
Sein Blick geht sinnend in die Weite und scheint schon wieder an das nächste Abenteuer zu denken, dass es aufzuschreiben wert wäre.

  1. I think other web site proprietors should take this site as an model, very clean and fantastic user genial style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  2. Hey, you used to write great, but the last several posts have been kinda boring?K I miss your tremendous writings. Past few posts are just a bit out of track! come on!

  3. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

  4. Nice post. I study something more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It would always be stimulating to learn content from other writers and apply somewhat something from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely helpful information specifically the last part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  6. Victor B, Sorry, I forgot to email you earlier. I recieved the tv in about one week and it is in perfect condition and works like a dream. Thank you so much for excellent customer service and an excellent product.
    This will be my only question. I asked you this a while back but hadn’t heard from you so I asked this question on video help message boards but was told there wasn’t a straight answer to it but you understood what I meant and was able to tell me which recorder to get & I couldn’t be more happy with it so I need to ask you this again so you can tell me the phrase I need to look out for so I know which recorders to buy from you in the future. Otherwise I’ll have to keep asking you each time I want to buy a recorder from you which one has the capabilities I need so if you tell me the technical phrase I can find which ones you have that I need for myself and then I could just go and order those ones from you. Becuase you helped me, I don’t want to buy elsewhere in the future so I promise I won’t take the information you give me and shop elsewhere. So here is the message again and hope to hear what the phrase is so I can look for it on your future items for

  7. All of the video sites I visted and asked this to weren’t able to help me with this but you did and it’s been invaluable to me.
    One question though, being a newbie at this sort of thing, what is the technical phrase for this? What is it that’s listed in the product specs on your web pages that told you this Pioneer model could handle the A/V synch issue on the DVD+R discs? I’d just like to know so I know what to look out for in the future is all. Thanks in advance for the reply.

  8. Charlie – that’s all… ok! Not a problem, I was very pleased with the first batch of items I obtained from your company; I’m using them every day with my U.S.-produced equipment here in Australia. I trust that this order, which is for the rest of the items to be included with the relocation of my household, will perform at the same level that the first one has. Keep up the good work and I’ll definitely be recommending you to anyone I know in need of various electronic equipment, converters, transformers, etc. that have to work internationally.
    Thank you so much. I am sorry for any inconvenience to you. It’s a browser issue. I have used World Imports twice in the past for region free DVD players and would think of no other. You provide wonderful service and great prices. When I am in need of a new player I just go to your site. I also tell my friends about it.

  9. Hi,I received my new oppo dvd player today and I am very happy with it. Great choice the gentlemen who recommended it to me. The only thing there was no receipt in the box. Can a receipt be mailed to me for my records please. Also, was the samsung dvd player I sent back received.
    I am a returning and a very happy customer. My name is Dimitri G. During the late summer I purchased an all regions DVD player. Couple of weeks ago I called and explained that I wanted to buy a pair of cordless telephones for my parents who reside part of time in Athens Greece, but I was not quite sure which model to order, and of course something that would work with 220 volts of power. One of your associates advised me as far as which model I should order.

  10. When I ordered the phones I explained that we did not have too many days to wait for the delivery since our guest were leaving earlier that we had planned. Your excellent associate promised me that he would expedite the order with no additional charge and also told me the exact day that the order would arrive. My order arrived on the exact date that I was told, in an outstanding condition. I just wanted to express my gratitude towards your great team of people that you have working there. Great job, and excellent service. You are listed in my favorites list of web sites as number one. Thank you again. You can count on me to return back for any other type of electronics shopping. May you have a happy, healthy and prosperous year.
    My experience with World-Import has been excellent. I found them over the internet and worked with Victor on the phone over the course of a couple of months. He helped me to identify the type of television I would need to be compatible with PAL N in Argentina. He also helped me with transformers for the rest of my electronics. I bought a Sonia Bravia TV, Yamaha Receiver, and Panasonic DVD – all multi-region. I am very happy with all three purchases. All three items were shipped via Fed-EX/UPS and arrived safely. I would recommend World-Import to anyone in the future.
