That this form of historical romance was still viable for some greatly gifted writers long after "the Heyday of Sir Walter Scott" is proven by Stevenson's Kidnapped and Conrad's The Duelists. But the limitations of the classic form of historical romance were apparent even during Scott's own lifetime. Although not unmoved by the heroic clarions of epic literature, Hawthorne and Melville saw that the historical romance as written by Scott and Cooper would not meet their own needs unless its center of action and moral interest could be relocated inwards.
