is a historical play dramatizing the life of one
of Scotland’s greatest heroes, William Wallace, whose revolt
against England in the early fourteenth century led to
his capture and execution, but, also through the continuing
and successful rebellion of his successor, Robert the
Bruce, to eventual Scottish independence.
The author is revealed not only as a major dramatic poet,
but as a chronicler of history. The work carries an excitement
and emotional charge that can infect an audience
with the author’s own concern for freedom and justice.
