Descrizione

This is a collection of prose and poetry taken from the first three books - the Young Gwernin trilogy - of the Storyteller series, which follows the adventures of a group of bards and storytellers in the years after King Arthur's death. If you have not yet read the novels, you might want to go and start there, as some of these poems could be considered to be plot spoilers. On the other hand, you might just want to plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin's world...

Introduction

Blood and fire, gold and steel and poetry, a river’s voice in the silence of the night, and the shining strings of a harp—all these and more I have known in my time…

That is the beginning of Storyteller, the first of my series of novels about Britain and her bards in the years after King Arthur’s death. The words are spoken by Gwernin, the narrator of the series, who begins as a traveling storyteller, and eventually becomes a true bard. If you have not yet read the novels, you might want to go and start there, as some of these poems – all of which are taken from the first three books of the series, which make up the Young Gwernin trilogy – could be considered to be plot spoilers. On the other hand, you might just want to plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin’s world.

Most of the poetry in the Storyteller books is more or less intricately intertwined with the narrative, so I thought it better to include bits of the surrounding prose which sets the scene; in some places I have also slightly abridged that prose to suit my altered purpose. I hope that this little book will serve as a pleasant reminder to those who have read the novels, and as an enticing introduction to those who haven’t yet. And I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.

Songs from Storyteller

Gwydion’s Song

I was happy enough at that moment. The silken flow of the water around my bare feet, and the cool, stream-polished smoothness of the dark gray stone beneath me, and the warmth of the sun on my skin and hair—all these were all pure pleasure, as was the thin bright piping of my companion, which mixed and mingled gently with the singing of the small birds in the oak above us. I hardly noticed when the piping stopped, and changed to song instead:

"Oak there grows ’twixt earth and sky–
