The Black Prince, Adam Roberts
Cover
Author: Roberts, Adam
Author: Burgess, Anthony
Publication year: 2018
Language: English
Category: Fiction
ISBN: 9781783526475
Notes:
The story of Edward, the Black Prince's campaigns in fourteenth-century France is brought to vivid life by the acclaimed novelist Adam Roberts. Based on a completed screenplay and the notes for an unfinished novel by Anthony Burgess, and using a variety of narrative styles - including 'camera eye' sections and reports of events as if delivered by contemporary news teams - 'The Black Prince' is a brutal historical novel of chivalry, religious belief, obsession, siege and bloody warfare. From disorientating depictions of medieval battles to court intrigues and betrayals, Roberts reveals himself as an author in complete control of the novel as a way of making us look at history with fresh eyes, all while staying true to the linguistic pyrotechnics and narrative verve of Burgess's best work.
