Peter S. Beagle’s ‘None But The Harper’

“I am no king, and I am no lord.
And I am no soldier at arms,” said he.
“I am none but a harper, and a very poor harper
That has come hither to wed with thee.”

Peter S. Beagle’s ‘None But The Harper’

Usually whoever of us is writing the weekly edition up would give you a song or tune as the coda to the edition. And so it is this week but we’ve got a treat for you that’s just a bit different — Peter S. Beagle, author and composer and musician, singing ‘None But The Harper’ which he wrote about the same time as The Last Unicorn which would be in the late Sixties! When it was recorded is not at all clear but his voice and playing is quite superb, so let’s listen to ‘None But The Harper’.

 

About Cat Eldridge

I’m the publisher of Green Man Review which has been exploring the roots and branches of our shared global culture for close to thirty years. My favorite Works by Peter are A Fine and Private Place and Tamsin plus pretty all of his shorter fiction such as ‘Come Lady Death’.

I’ve met but once over dinner and he’s quite witty and charming in person.

At Green Man Review, he’s the only writer that we like so much that two editions were done on him and his works.
