Blackmore, often referred to as the “Last Victorian”, was a pioneer of the movement in fiction that continued with Robert Louis Stevenson and others. He has been described as “proud, shy, reticent, strong-willed, sweet-tempered, and self-centered.” Apart from his novel Lorna Doone, which has enjoyed continuing popularity, his work has gone out of print.
