    Boys Own melancholia, immensely sad and bittersweet It s interesting that a story that pits the British against vile marauding Saxons how Tolkien would have frowned should consistently strike a note of such Nordic stoicism, the urging of the fight in the face of all honour and chance of glory lost But in a very English way, what could besentimental This novel could only have be...

    Rosemary Sutcliff s books so often bring a strange, tearful, lovely lump to my throat, and a strange, gut wrenching mist to my eyes that tugs at my heart strings so beautifully How does she do it, I wonder I sometimes think that we stand at sunset, Eugenus said after a pause It may be that the night will close over us in the end, but I believe that morning will come again Morning always grows again out of the darkness, though maybe not for the people who saw the sun go down We are the La Rosemary Sutcliff s books so often bring a strange, tearful, lovely lump to my throat, and a strange, gut wrenching mist to my eyes that tugs at my heart strings so beautifully How does she do it,...

    I didn t like this when I was younger, and reading it now, I have no idea why It s the usual fare for Rosemary Sutcliff a well researched story set in post Roman Britain, drawing on real sources Geoffrey of Monmouth s Historia, mostly, but perhaps also Wace and Layamon s Bruts It concerns the parts pre Arthur Hengist and Horsa, Vortigern and Ambrosius It begins just as the Romans leave Britain for the last time, and covers a period of pushing back against the Saxons and their kind T I didn t like this when I was younger, and reading it now, I have no idea why It s the usual fare for Rosemary Sutcliff a well researched story set in post Roman Britain, drawing on real sources Geoffrey of Monmouth s Historia, mostly, but perhaps also Wace and Layamon s Bruts It concerns the parts pre Arthur Hengist and Horsa, Vortigern and Ambrosius It be...

    If Eagle of the Ninth is the story of learning that there s no going back, The Lantern Bearers is the story of struggling to find a way forward Except instead of Marcus, with his kingfisher summer of friends and quintessential resilience, we have Aquila, by far the darkest, brooding, and least nice of Sutcliff s heroes.This is a hard book to read Even when Aquila starts to find small scraps of joy on a personal level, there s still the inescapable fact that this is the twilight of the age a If Eagle of the Ninth is the story of learning that there s no going back, The Lantern Bearers is the story of struggling to find a way forward Except instead of Marcus, with his kingfisher summer of friend...

    The third in the sequence of loosely related books that began with The Eagle Of The Ninth, The Lantern Bearers, which won the Carnegie Medal in 1959, is asophisticated,adult book than its predecessors Set in the fifth century AD, amid the chaos that followed upon the departure of the Roman legions from Britain, it tells the story of the impact of the Saxon invasion on one Romano British family, and in particular on one of its members, Aquila, descendant of Marcus, the hero of The Ea The third in the sequence of loosely related books that began with The Eagle Of The Ninth, The Lantern Bearers, which won the Carnegie Medal in 1959, is asophisticated,adult book than its predecessors Set in the fifth century AD, amid the chaos that followed upon the departure of the Roman legions from Britain, it tells the story of the impact of the Saxon invasion on one Romano British family, and in particular on one of its members, Aquila, descendant of Marcus, the hero of The Eagle Of The Ninth.As always, Sutcliff s writin...

    The decline and fall of Roman Britain in painful, angsty detail Aquila is a fascinating character here not really hero or even antihero, but a complicated man with complicated loyalties Compared to the straightforward soldiers of the previous books, he is quite a bit deeper and darker, and he s on his own here although he attaches himself to Ambrosius, who would be King of Britain if it weren t for those pesky Saxons this is not a buddy book like the previous two.Th...

    I d be hard pressed to choose a favourite of the Roman Britaintrilogy The Eagle of the Ninth with its story of unlikelyfriendship and The Silver Branch with its slightly darkersetting subject matter are both magnificent, of course And apparently, most people do like them better I guess jolly bromances, friendly characters, and hopefulness are appealing features in a book Especially when compared with bleakly hopeless tragedy and bitter, angry, vengeful loners like Aquila But right now a I d be hard pressed to choose a favourite of the...
