Publisher Description

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize–winning novel The Remains of the Day comes a luminous meditation on the act of forgetting and the power of memory.
In post-Arthurian Britain, the wars that once raged between the Saxons and the Britons have finally ceased. Axl and Beatrice, an elderly British couple, set off to visit their son, whom they haven't seen in years. And, because a strange mist has caused mass amnesia throughout the land, they can scarcely remember anything about him. As they are joined on their journey by a Saxon warrior, his orphan charge, and an illustrious knight, Axl and Beatrice slowly begin to remember the dark and troubled past they all share. By turns savage, suspenseful, and intensely moving, The Buried Giant is a luminous meditation on the act of forgetting and the power of memory.

The Buried Giant

Really enjoyed this book. It was a little difficult to get into the story for the first few chapters but it was well worth the investment. The characters were compelling.

archetypes and legends

Wrought well yet leaving me with many questions. I may need to re-read, re-read, re-read to clearly understand who is who among the archetypes...
The boatman's presence is clear.
Worth the read. Magic abounds
