Lorna Doone

A Romance of Exmoor

R. D. Blackmore
Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Sally Shuttleworth

Oxford World's Classics

  • This is the only critical edition of this perennially popular story.
  • Sally Shuttleworth's introduction finds, beneath the idyllic evocation of rural bliss and a tale of love and high adventure, a startling sub-text which rigidly defends Victorian values, and portrays a 'manly' hero constantly having to prove his masculinity to himself.
