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
