21 - The Buried Giant pt 2

The Buried Giant (cover)

This episode, Maureen Kincaid Speller (@maureenkspeller) and I conclude our discussion (part 1) of The Buried Giant, beginning with the figure of the boatman, and maintaining a focus on the personal relationships.

Our discussion covers the tussle between the personal and the political, anachronisms and the construction of a composite pre-Norman Britain, and moves to the conclusion of the novel as Axl and Beatrice meet the boatman who will carry them across the river.

The amazing art which inspired me to actually get this project off the ground was created by @etrandem
