About this product
- DescriptionAfter the battle of Brunanburh (CE 937), when AEthelstan's army defeated an invading alliance of Scots, Irish, Britons, and Norse, the Viking mercenary Egil Skallagrimsson extemporized a panegyric for the English and their king. Englaland is a stunning re-imagining of Skallagrimsson's song, an unapologetic and paradoxical affirmation of a bloody, bloody-minded and bloody brilliant people. Danish huscarls, Falklands war heroes, pit-village bird-nesters, aging prize-fighters, flying pickets, jihadi suicide-bombers and singing yellowhammers parade through the book in an incendiary combination, rising to the challenge of the skald's affirmation: you are the people in the land; kw you are the people; kw it is your land.
