Summary The Black Arrow A Tale of the Two Roses ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF La parte della Rosa Bianca e della Freccia Nera una banda di fuorilegge che stanca di vessazioni e soprusi combatte le crudeli ingiustizie dei potentiSeguendo le vicende della guerra Stevenson avrà modo di offrire al lettore un. I love Stevenson as a writer yet The Black Arrow had somehow passed me by before now It s a medieval Treasure Island set during the Wars of the Roses and published like Treasure Island first pseudonymously as a serial publication 1883 and then as a novel 1888 Like Treasure Island The Black Arrow is often labeled as children s fiction though the current Young Adult category fits it better ie there s a lot in it for old adults as well Stevenson was amusingly dismissive of this book he sympathizes with his wife in the dedicatory letter for never having managed to get through it but it s actually a splendid yarn and immensely readable I ripped through it in a few hours on a long distance flight the perfect reading context for a novel of this kind The uality isn t uniform a few passages are by the yard but there s also some excellent action writing and taut evocative scene setting You can also see interesting anticipations of some of Stevenson s later novelistic themes especially in the latter stages where Richard of Gloucester the future Richard III has a memorable cameo as a kind of dark Hyde like double to The Black Arrow s boy protagonist Richard Shelton revealing the ambiguities in Shelton s own character and actionsI liked someone s description of this novel in a review on this site as like reading an accelerated Dumas novel The Black Arrow is certainly closer to Dumas than Scott in terms of historical heft although it draws substantially on Ivanhoe especially for its Robin Hood like band of outlaws Stevenson makes no attempt to track the actual political events of the 1460s and he cheerily admits to having adding ten years to Richard III s age to allow him to participate in the novel s entirely fictional final battle The point about acceleration is also good Stevenson writes with great economy as always His descriptive language is always graceful and precise and sometimes inspired A battered ship in a storm half disappearing beneath a wave rose on the other side with appalling tremulous indecision the revenge bent men of a village came clustering in an inky mass onto its snow bound streets In our first glimpse of the outlaws camp predictably sinister elements cauldrons arrows a deer carcass hung on a hawthorn bush mix with the surreally poetic a man lay slumbering rolled in a brown cloak with a butterfly hovering over his face There is something faintly miraculous about reading a simple tale of swashbuckling folk narrated with such refinement I would happily read a shopping list written by this man

Summary The Black Arrow A Tale of the Two Roses ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF La Rosa Rossa o la Rosa Bianca York o Lancaster In un'Inghilterra insanguinata dalla guerra delle Due Rose il giovane Dick Shelton un cavaliere senza macchia e senza paura per vendicare la morte del padre decide di schierarsi dal. Black Arrow by Robert Louise Stevenson is a historical fiction set in the time of War of the Roses The book tells the story of a young man named Richard Shelton who in the uest of obtaining justice for his father s murder and rescuing his love from the grip of the villainous warden displays loyalty and courage and becomes an important warrior for the Yorks For his unwavering valor he is rewarded with a knighthood The story is interesting enough but what I liked most is the history that is set as the background to the story which was uite informative It is well written using language appropriate for the time period coupled with local dialect The dramatic uality and fast pace created suspense and set the tone appropriate for the battles However I wish Stevenson could have worked on making his writing a little personal and close to heart for so far I have observed that his writing though good is distant and detached And for this reason the reader is unable to feel as much for the characters as he ought to Overall it was a good engaging read and I did enjoy it

Another classic child hood favorite I haven t read it in over 20 years so it s time for a re readI m glad I re read it I appreciated it on a number of different levels this time around beyond simply enjoying the action adventure and romance aspects There were all sorts of historical characters and events that 9 year old Ian failed to recognize apparently I didn t know much about Richard III or the War of the Roses back then Stevenson creates arguably the most successful fictional adaptation of Richard III presenting him as a complex multifaceted man who while not conventionally likable is a brilliant leader and powerful warrior I also suspect that this novel formed the inspiration for Lloyd Alexander s The Book of Three as the relationship between Dick John reminded me of the relationship between Taran Eilonwy Despite Stevenson s own contempt for this novel I appreciated its frank depiction of the wages of war and the complicated nature of the YorkLancaster struggled Definitely a book I ll be reading to or recommending to my children
