The poet Ian Crockatt uses the same highly-wrought form here developed by the Skalds (the professional poets employed by the kings and earls of the Viking courts of the 9th to 13th centuries) to tell a quasi-Viking tale set in the landscapes and seascapes once under Viking control.

Description

The poet Ian Crockatt has published two superb translations of Viking poetry with Arc- Crimsoning the Eagle’s Claw: the Viking Poems of Rognvaldr Kali Kolsson, Earl of Orkney and The Song Weigher: the Complete Poems of Egill Skallagrimsson, Tenth Century Viking & Skald – and in this chapbook he uses the same highly-wrought form developed by the Skalds (the professional poets employed by the kings and earls of the Viking courts of the 9th to 13th centuries) to tell a quasi-Viking tale set in the landscapes and seascapes once under Viking control – the West Coast of Scotland where he used to live, and the north-east corner of Scotland where he now lives.
