Watters p.297, Spadoni & Donnelly 1 061, Tennyson, Cape Bretoniana 4960. “The scene of his latest novel is Ravanoolish, a lovely Cape Breton village, clinging to the hillsides that run down to the Bras d'Or. Four hours away, the great smokestacks from coal pitsand steel-furnaces, roll their sooty clouds to blacken the clean blue of h eaven. Between these two extremes flow the rivers of the actors in the drama. Here religion and scepticism, the sweet culture of gentle souls and the fierce ruthlessness of modern commerce, materialism and idealism, pure loveand hideous lust, mingle and work out their various destinies.” - from the dj.
