It is to explain this assimilation, and to deconstruct the myriad ways that Wallaces biography has been endlessly refreshed as a national narrative, over many generations, that forms this investigation.William Wallace: A National Tale examines the elision of Wallaces after-life into narrative ascendency, dominating the ideology and politics of nationalism in Scotland.

This narrative is conceptualised as the national tale, a term taken out of its literary moorings to scrutinise how the personal biography of a medieval patriot has been evoked and presented as the nations biography over seven centuries of time.

Through the verse of Blind Hary, the romance of Jane Porter, to the historical imaginations of Braveheart and Brave, Scotlands national tale has been forged.This is a fresh, engaging and timely exploration into Wallaces hold over Scotlands national mythology.
