In The Spy (1821), the first of Cooper's tales of the painful division of loyalties occasioned by the Independence movement, the American The Waverley-mode/ 39 Tories are, unmistakably, the counterparts of Edward Waverley and his Jacobite relations. However, it should be said straightway that, despite the rich potential of the subject and some moving glimpses of what befell the American Tories (notably in Hawthorne's "My Kinsman, Major Molineux" and Cooper's Wyandotte), American historical romancers were generally unable to invest the American Loyalists with the dignity and pathos and intelligence which are to be found in many of Scott's Stuart Loyalists.
Cooper was soon followed by Manzoni in The Betrothed (1827); by Pushkin in The Captain's Daughter (1831) and Adam Mickiewicz in the Polish epic Pan Tadeuz (1834); a n d much later by Tolstoy in The Cossacks (1852). These are but the greatest names among those who joined in extending Scott's achievement as a historical romancer into international tradition - something much more than a fad and less than a "movement" - of immense social as well as literary interest. In the remaining sections of this chapter I shall discuss the abiding political relevance and meaning — the major theme — embodied in the Waverley-model; its origins in literary theory and practice before Waverley, its epic aspirations; and finally its embodiment in one of Cooper's major historical romances.
