Literary synopsis “In *The Sundering Flood* the first meeting between the hero and heroine occurs when Osberne, on the eastern bank of the river, sees Elfhild emerge from a cave in the cliff-side on the river's western bank. The two children make their way to the Bight of the Cloven Knoll; the point at which 'The Sundering Flood' is narrowest, and begin to question one another. Morris's hero and heroine continue to meet at the Bight of the Cloven Knoll through both summer and winter for five years. As they approach adulthood, their enforced separation becomes daily more irksome to them but they can see no prospect of physically meeting.” - Helen A. Timo William Morris was writing *The Sundering Flood* in 1896 as his health was steadily failing. He became so ill that he had to dictate the final words of the work to Sydney Cockerell on September 8, 1896. [Download book](
