Excerpt from Erema, or My Father's Sin

The sins of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

These are the words that have haunted me always. This is the ban which has darkened my life.

If I had not known my father, if I had not loved him, if I had not closed his eyes in desert silence deeper than the silence of the grave; even if I could have buried and bewailed him duly; the common business of this world, and the universal carelessness, might have led me down the general track that leads to nothing.

Until my father fell and died, I never dreamed that he could die. I knew that his mind was quite made up to see me safe in my new home, and then himself to start again for still remoter solitudes. And when his mind was thus made up, who had ever known him fail of it?

If ever a resolute man there was, that very man was my father. And he showed it now, in this the last and fatal act of his fatal life. 'Captain, here I leave you all,' he shouted to the leader of our waggon-train, at a place where a dark, narrow gorge departed from the moilsome mountain-track. 'My reasons are my own; let no man trouble himself about them. All my baggage I leave with you.

About the Author:

Richard Doddridge Blackmore (7 June 1825 – 20 January 1900), referred to most commonly as R. D. Blackmore, was one of the most famous English novelists of the second half of the nineteenth century. Over the course of his career, Blackmore achieved a close following around the world. He won literary merit and acclaim for his vivid descriptions and personification of the countryside, sharing with Thomas Hardy a Western England background and a strong sense of regional setting in his works. Noted for his eye for and sympathy with nature, critics of the time described this as one of the most striking features of his writings.
