Outlawed in Norway and storm-driven to England, Egil the Viking fights for his life with poetry as his only weapon.
A astonishing, new long poem, inspired by the Icelandic saga tradition, Egil will be performed by its author with subtle musical accompaniment. A piece of epic story-telling, centred on the extraordinary life of the world's greatest warrior-bard.
"The astonishing Peter Oswald... his dazzling use of language marks him out" Society of Authors
