Description

In the words of The Cambridge History of English and American Literature, William Black made "full use of the properties, highland pride and feuds, pipers, legends, ballads and superstitions, the trusted and officious old retainer and dialect; to all this he imparts a personal quality by two rather novel practices. First, he develops the description, in a quasi-poetical style, of the sky and heather and sea of the Hebrides into a separate art, his skill in which won for him a standing among artists; twelve of the most famous illustrators of the day contributed to Macleod of Dare...A second device which Black elaborated ...was the clash of temperaments of widely differing racial types. The Gaelic Macleod of Dare, moody, passionate, foredoomed, should have shown vividly in contrast with the actress Gertrude White, city-born and bred." The Cambridge History may be right in classifying him as "Lesser Novelist," but he seems a lot better than that to us. We like this book, and we're sure that you will, too.
