Beschreibung

In this remarkable novel, Bryher takes the reader into sixth century Britain-Cornwall, the Scillys, Ireland and Wales. Arthur is dead and the uneasy peace which he established is drawing to its close. Young Ruan, nephew of a high priest, is destined for the priesthood. Turbulent and restless for adventure, he feels caged and longs for the high seas. At last he breaks free and sets out on the quest for those islands which are to him both an image and reality. The sights, sounds, passions and ordeals of Celtic Britain filter through Bryher's haunting prose. With Ruan's eyes we see the throngs at the Cornish fair, the religious ritual, the burial of the king on the mysterious Scilly Isles. With him we experience the mariners' winter camp in Ireland and with him we flee for life through an Irish bog.
