Product Overview

Speed of Dark is structured around his astonishing reworking of the text ofLe Roman de Fauvel, a medieval text that railed against the corruption of the 12th-century French court and church. In Ian Duhig's hands, however, the tale of the power-mad horse-king Fauvel gains a terrifying and almost prophetic contemporary relevance, and is identified with more recent crusades, crazed ambitions, and insatiable greed. Elsewhere Duhig's many admirers will be delighted by his new ballads and elegies, his erudite high jinks, and his low gagswith which he builds on the new imaginative territory he staked out in The Lammas Hireling to such universal acclaim. This collection again shows Duhig as one the most capacious and brilliant minds in contemporary poetry
