Lorna Doone : a romance of Exmoor
The words "Lorna Doone" are familiar to all readers of English literature. In 1869 Richard Doddridge Blackmore published his romance of Exmoor and saw it become one of the most beloved stories of the century." "In Lorna Doone Blackmore invented a unique narrative voice in the homely John Ridd, a dramatic love story with the mysterious Lorna of the outlaw Doones, and a magnificent setting in the descriptions of Devon and Somerset. This Penguin Classics edition returns to the first edition text, largely unavailable for over a hundred years, while including all of Blackmore's prefaces. Robert Madison introduces Lorna Doone in the context of Blackmore's life and works, while Michelle Allen closely analyzes the revisions of his most enduring book. The editors have included a glossary of West Country dialect by Blackmore's contemporary William Barnes.
