Lorna Doone

R. D. Blackmore

The epic qualities of Lorna Doone – seen both in its extreme archetypal characters as well as in the action and language itself – are what makes it such a riveting adventure throughout. Just as the boy John Ridd climbed the waterfall into an almost fairytale world of evil Doones and the enchanting Lorna; so we are drawn into Blackmore’s fictional drama, which is at the same time both real and magical. Notice how John’s narrative and actions – at times grandly poetic and heroic, at others urbane and pragmatic – allow the lyrical and the down-to-earth qualities of the story to co-exist side by side to brilliant comic effect.
