Cloister and the Hearth, Volume III"The Cloister and the Hearth" is Charles Reade's greatest work--and, I believe, the greatest historical novel in the language. . . . "One can only say that this great writer--there is no greater praise--paints women as they are, men as they are, things as they are. What we call genius is first the power of seeing men, women, and things as they are--most of us, being without genius, are purblind--and then the power of showing them by means of "invention"--by the grafting of "invention" upon fact. No man has shown greater power of grasping fact and of weaving invention upon it than Charles Reade." -- from Walter Besant's introduction… (plus d'informations)

I have just re-read this after many years. It is a bit of an oddity: the story of the rather hopeless love affair of the parents of Erasmus the famous 16thC humanist scholar. But this is really just an excuse for Reade to rollick through medieval Europe, encountering rogues, cutpurses, beggars, hermits, saucy chambermaids, villainous landlords, mercenaries, lords, ladies and peasants. He based all this on contemporary accounts, which gives realism and colour to the story.
Rather like that other Victorian historical novel, "Lorna Doone", the story is vivid and compellingly told, and well worth reading even today.
Courage, mon ami, le diable est mort!

This remarkable novel shares the fate of many a former 'bestseller': its readership plummeted after its hour of fame passed, and has not been renewed. I came to The Cloister and the Hearth expecting Sir Walter Scott, but got a gripping and occasionally harrowing mixture of Les Misérables, Game of Thrones and Cadfael. The book has a highly unusual premise: to tell the story of the parents of Erasmus of Rotterdam. Given that Erasmus himself is not a major character in the book, this might sound like a post facto justification for a simple historical novel, but the events of the book do actually mirror Erasmus's own slightly romantic account of his heritage. Where Reade excels is in drawing character, making his large cast live and breathe; we rejoice at their triumphs and are dismayed by their many setbacks. His feeling for the period is similarly developed; the events of history unfold but are not made to dominate the story. Sadly, the novel is not without its flaws; first among these is Reade's unfortunate style for presenting dialogue. In order to represent the everyday Dutch of the fifteenth century, he employs mock-Elizabethan English that mars the book's conversation to the point of ridicule ('Zounds, stop that bellyache blether,' quoth he, 'that will ne'er wile a stiver out o' peasants' purses'). Despite this, and the expected slew of coincidences, The Cloister and the Hearth is a well-crafted story with strong characters that justifies its 800 or so pages. ( )

I just had my local bookseller order this book for me. I wish I had opted for a different edition. The print in this edition (which was ordered directly from Create Space, but does not display that name anywhere on any page or the cover) is so small, it is incredible. There is no information anywhere on the book, but I can guess the print is 6 pt. I can only imagine the eye-strain to come. And, wonder of wonders, they don't accept returns. So I'm stuck with it. I will know better next time. And I had been so looking forward to reading it.

Not a day passes orver the earth, but men and women of no note do great deeds, speak great words, and suffer noble sorrows. Of these obscure heroes, philosophers, and martyrs, the greater part will never be known till that hour, when many that are great shall be small, and the small great; but of others the world's knowledge may be said to sleep: their lives and characters lie hidden from nations in the annals that record them.
