To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
The ruin stands on a high, precipitous headland projecting far out into the ocean and cut off fromthe land side by a deep, irregular ravine, and the descent and ascent ofthe almost perpendicular sides was anything but an easy task. A singlewinding footpath leads to the grim old gateway, and we rang the bellmany times before the custodian admitted us. Inside the gate the steepascent continues through a rude, tunnellike passageway, its sides for adistance of one hundred feet or more pierced with ...many an embrasure forarchers or musketeers. Emerging from this we came into the castle court, the center of the small plateau on the summit of the rock. Around usrose the broken, straggling walls, bare and bleak, without a shred ofivy or wall-flower to hide their grim nakedness. The place was typicalof a rude, semi-barbarous age, an age of rapine, murder and ferociouscruelty, and its story is as terrific as one would anticipate from itsforbidding aspect. Here it was the wont of robber barons to retire withtheir prisoners and loot; and later, on account of the inaccessibility, state and political prisoners were confined here from time to time.
