This episode, Maureen Kincaid Speller (@maureenkspeller) and I conclude our discussion (part 1) of The Buried Giant, beginning with the figure of the boatman, and maintaining a focus on the personal relationships.Our discussion covers the tussle between the personal and the political, anachronisms and the construction of a composite pre-Norman Britain, and moves to the conclusion of the novel as Axl and Beatrice meet the boatman who will carry them across the river.
