R D Blackmore and "Lorna Doone"

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 35 (1903), pp. 239-250.


J.R. Chanter

Prepared by Michael Steer

The preface of Blackmore's famous book asserts that the work is a romance not a historical novel, since the author neither "dares, nor desires, to claim for it the dignity or cumber it with the difficulty of an historical novel." It combines elements of traditional romance, of Sir Walter Scott's historical novel tradition, of the pastoral tradition, of traditional Victorian values, and of the contemporary sensation novel trend. The basis for Blackmore's historical understanding is Macaulay's History of England and its analysis of the Monmouth rebellion.
