Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“A violent, absorbing historical saga, deeply researched and thoroughly imagined.” (Washington Post)

“Cornwell successfully brings an unjustly obscure era in British history to life….The conflict between Dane and Saxon is examined with sympathy and insight-without projecting 21st century values onto cultures now alien to us. In the course of this, he shows how historical novels should be written.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Cornwell, a master of historical fiction, has written another energetic and involving mix of history and storytelling that will please his many fans….A sweeping story.” (Library Journal)

“Cornwell does a masterful job of showing not only how Uhtred fights, but also in how he uses his wits to backstab, threaten, bluff, and maneuver his way into a position where he’s able to fight with the best possible odds.” (Bookreporter.com)

“Plunges the reader into the world of the past, with all of its cruelties, nonexistent plumbing and deplorable personal grooming....Cornwell is a master at writing these historical novels, and The Pagan Lord as usual, is no exception.” (The Oklahoman)

“Uhtred of Bebbanburg rides into battle once again in the seventh installment of Cornwell’s stellar Saxon Tales series….Cornwell excels at depicting gloriously gory battle scenes as well as the inherent religious, political, and martial conflicts upon which a great nation was born.” (Booklist)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The seventh novel in Bernard Cornwell’s number one bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

BBC2’s major Autumn 2015 TV show THE LAST KINGDOM is based on the first two books in the series.

Uhtred – sword of the Saxons, bane of the Vikings – has been declared outcast.

Peace in Britain has given Uhtred time to cause trouble – for himself. Branded a pagan abomination by the church, he sails north. For, despite suspecting that Viking leader Cnut Longsword will attack the Saxons again, Uhtred is heading for Bebbanburg, fearing that if he does not act now he will never reclaim his stolen birthright.

Yet Uhtred’s fate is bound to the Saxons. To Aethelflaed, bright lady of Mercia and to a dead king’s dream of England. For great battles must still be fought – and no man is better at that than Uhtred.

Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s mind is as sharp as his sword. A thorn in the side of the priests and nobles who shape his fate, this Saxon raised by Vikings is torn between the life he loves and those he has sworn to serve.

I have been following the 'Worrier Chronicles' from the fist, having read other of Cornwell's series. I find it important not to read them too close together, as the formula becomes too apparent. This book is a good example of what Cornwall does so well. He uses uncertain history to write a strong, masculine novel. In this one he perhaps allows the savagery full rein at times. His descriptions of battle, however, are credible and engaging. Some have suggested they are repetitive. That takes me back to the idea of not reading the books one after the other without a good break. In the end I guess there is only so much one can say about what was a very brutal and crude form of warfare. In this book the details of the lie of the land are important and add credibility. Conwell is always very honest about the degree to which he changes known facts. He is writing a novel after all, not academic history. I enjoy the books, I find his style easy and entertaining. I look forward to the next (the last?) in the series.

After his last success to save the kingdom of Edward, Uhtred has been given a few land.But 10 years of peace came and his glorious past left memories. Churchmen are watching any wrong pace from his side to condemn the pagan. It will be easy for them to provoke the fierce man and change him in a paria in the christian kingdoms.
His loyalty to Edward's sister will make him come back when the Danes will attack. And he will fight for her lover, for his reputation and obviously for the challenge of being one against twenty!
The description of the battle is epic. Uhtred is without compromise as usual. It will simply not be possible to wait 2 years for the next episode!

Good continuation to the chronicles of Uthred of Babbenburg. Enjoyable read with excellent descriptions. The imagined situations sew the story together well from what real information we have from this period.

The perfect companion for all history enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER Calix Imperium, Coupe à vin en étain ROMA VICTRIX

The very prolific Bernard Cornwell continues his Saxon Chronicles series with "The Pagan Lord," the seventh entry. Now, main character Uhtred of Bebbanburg, warrior chief for the Saxon cause against the Danish invasions, is showing some age. He's past 50, which for a warrior in the year 910, is pretty remarkable. In this entry he's on the outs with the church and his devout son, and he fails in his attempt to recapture the castle that is rightfully his. He spends most of the book a leader without followers, a man-at-arms without a cause.

But never fear, causes seem to find Uhtred whether he's searching for them or not. While he and his ragtag troop are laying low in coastal Frisia, a captured woman helps Uhtred understand the designs and desires of kings and warlords across the British Isles. He finally decides what he must do, and promptly leads his forces, such as they are, on a harried chase of destruction and kidnapping across the Mercian Midlands to the Welsh border. And at the end, Uhtred faces likely death at the hands of a ruthless Danish force which outnumbers him at least 20-to-1.

Mr. Cornwell delights us and enthralls us with several features in this series. First is the perfect verisimilitude to tenth-century Saxon England. Second, he has chosen this epoch because it is a crucial juncture in the history of the British Isles. Uhtred's fictional exploits help to steer it toward English (or at that time, Anglo-Saxon) and away from Norse.
