    Hoiden

    Hello,

    Can anybody explain to me the meaning of the word hoiden in the context below?

    "The corridors were everywhere thigh-deep with water. Rags of the storm, irrageous by way of the orifice in the shattered dome, now blustered with hoiden wantonness through the house."

    Vaila, M.P.Shiel, 1896

    Thank you very much
