Many years after the events of The House of the Wolfings the descendants of the Wolfing tribe live on the mountains dispersed in smaller tribes and mostly ignorant of their past. A new danger, this time the Huns, will unite them once more and force them to war in order to defend their freedom and way of life.
This is the second, and last, of Morris’s novels with a strong historic background. The descendants of the Wolfings live simple lives in a world of less magic and poetry than their ancestors. The story here is more complex as it follows the reunification of the tribes under a common threat. It is written almost entirely in prose with only a few songs. Once again Morris writes in his unique style immersing us in a unique tapestry of war and love embellished with fine details of nature, landscape and ancient customs.
The Prose Romances of William Morris is intended to be the definitive edition of Morris’s fantasy works, keystones of British fantasy literature that influenced authors like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis in writing such classics as The Lord Of The Rings and The Chronicles Of Narnia.
