Grazie, grazie e ancora grazie, Tu Raccontami una storia Le dame, i cavalieri, i soldati, i fuorilegge.
From the beloved author of Treasure Island Originally serialized in a periodical of boys' adventure fiction, The Black Arrow is a swashbuckling portrait of a young man's journey to discover the heroism within himself. Il castello e la foresta. Il libro è comunque una lettura piacevole, avvincente e in alcuni punti divertente. Another downside to the book is the disjointed nature of it. The two Houses go to war.
I've read other books where the main characters aren't exactly heroes such as George R. Sir Richard Shelton, a young British nobleman, returns from the War of the Roses to find his father dead and his accused murderer, Sir John Sedley, living in the forest with a fugitive band of die-hard rebels like Robin Hood. I haven't read it in over 20 years, so it's time for a re-read! He fights for several people all at once even if they are enemies. Now I am heart-broken : I have no idea why The Black Arrow is not canon in the way that Treasure Island or Dr. I was reminded of watching a Shakespearean play, where it takes you a scene or two to really get into the old language and follow along relatively clearly.
Earlier, Sir Daniel, Dick's warden, and the villain of the story, is sitting in an inn by the fire, plotting. Dick is a highly idealistic character. But while modern pop culture clearly ascribes exclusive title to that territory to Robin Hood, 19th-century British writers and readers were aware that outlawry was a persistent feature of the English scene for centuries after Robin Hood; far from being anachronistic, the social conditions of the Wars of the Roses, with their displacement of the poor and opportunities for legalized plunder by the powerful, were well calculated to mass produce bands of angry and vengeful outlaws with plenty of grievances. Robert Luis Stevenson is a writer to watch. En una historia de venganza, y sobre todo si elemento da título al libro, la acción debería girar principalmente en torno a ese elemento. The Black Arrow is certainly closer to Dumas than Scott in terms of historical heft, although it draws substantially on , especially for its Robin Hood-like band of outlaws. If you're interested, check out my reviews Stevenson's Treasure Island and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde here on Amazon for more of my thoughts on those works.
But I have to give it five stars, despite its flaws, because, like every Robert Louis Stevenson book I've ever read, I could not put it down. I discovered it in my school library. Frasier doesn't stand out with this book, though she isn't inherently bad, either, and I wouldn't avoid her in other productions. While the civil war is being fought between two rival houses who want the throne , the count tries to marry his pupil Georgia Slow confronting his nephew Benedict Taylor. One notable point was Stevenson's treatment of the female cast. I love this tale of red rose against white rose, as it was the first book to enthrall me in the tangled web of 15th century England. Given their time and place, each is more realistic and sympathetic than many of the ridiculous female wonder women featured in modern adventure stories.
I can imagine generations of young and old readers bent over this book, as I was, drawn into the intrigue and romance. The House of York chooses a white rose while the House of Lancaster chooses a red rose. Caro, caro Robert Se avessi avuto 15 anni per questo libro sarei impazzita. The story is interesting enough, but what I liked most is the history that i Black Arrow by Robert Louise Stevenson is a historical fiction set in the time of War of the Roses. I had no trouble with the similarly jargon-laden and old fashioned Treasure Island.
This book was such an unexpected dissapointment. Il libro è comunque una lettura piacevole, avvincente e in alcuni punti divertente. One of the merits of Stevenson's writing is the imperfection of his heroes. On the contrary, the differences between the two novels are much more significant than the similarities. A lot of it I consciously remembered; much of it I recalled once reminded, and some of it was like a new book to me. I was ready to forgive this initially, but due to several other annoying elements, the randomness of the action got on my nerves. The Black Arrow, first published as a serial in 1883 and as a novel in 1888, follows the adventures of Dick Shelton as he discovers that his guardian may be responsible for the death of his father and se Since I enjoyed Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and enjoy medieval history, Stevenson's The Black Arrow would seem to be a perfect combination.
They tend to be - as Shelton is here - naive, not too bright, but with a strong moral sense; this makes them more interesting than the characters of many of the other writers of what might be termed proto-thrillers. But that's not the same thing as proving that this novel is a direct knock-off of. . It is a fantastic read, especially if you are like me and are in any way attracted to all things medieval. The characters were the worst part.
