The Lyonesse sequence evokes the Elder Isles, is a baroque land of pre-Arthurian myth now lost beneath the Atlantic, where powerful sorcerers, aloof faeries, stalwart champions, and nobles eccentric, magnanimous, and cruel pursue intrigue among their separate worlds . . . King Aillas of Troicinet defends the peace of the Elder Isles against both the Ska marauders who once enslaved him and the wicked King Casmir. While organizing the unruly barons in the frontiers of his land, Aillas goes out of his way to capture the lovely Ska noblewoman who once stung him with her disregard. When he gets separated from his men, his dream of forcing the lady's recognition becomes the toil of dragging a defiant captive across lands governed by Casmir's henchmen. Meanwhile, the world of magic has gone on the move. The concentrated malice of the witch Desmëi has manifested as a green pearl, breeding lust and envy and death; and a sorcerer in Casmir's employ abducts the princess Glyneth, in a bid to draw Aillas and friends on a hopeless rescue mission across a bizarre and deadly alternate world . . . (First published in 1985)

I first began working in the hospitality sector in 1970 first as a Night Auditor with the St. Lucia Beach Hotel, then with Holiday Inn, lately known as St. Lucian Hotel as night auditor and Assistant Front Office Manager and at the opening of the Steigenberger Cariblue Hotel, presently known as the Le Sport hotel, I started as the first Night Auditor, Reservations and Front Office Manager.In 1976 I traveled to Germany to undergo some more training in the hospitality industry. During my training with the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof Hotel in Frankfurt, and the Ritters Parkhotel in Bad Homberg, I dedicated myself intensively and successfully through daily schooling with the International inlingua school of languages in Frankfurt/Main to improve my German language skills. My professional experience was intensified and expanded through assignments at the front desk, the reservation department and the reception desk. I received a basic knowledge of the cash register / banking, IT accounts receivable management, daily financial statements and billing with travel agents. Upon returning to St. Lucia I worked with the Steigenberger cariblue Hotel as the Front Office manager until 1980.In 1980, my interest in serving my home land further intensified when I observed that there were so many foreign visitors, visiting the Island from Germany, Switzerland and Austria and there were no local German speaking guides to show the guests around. I resigned my position as Front Office/Reservation Manager and seized the opportunity and opened my own Touring service company "Joseph`s Touring Service ltd." I had the opportunity to represent Travel Agents from Germany, Switzerland and Austria: I represented companies such as "Airtours International," Air Charter Market, A.D.A.C (Allgemein Deutche Automative Club), from Germany, Imholz and Carib Tours from Switzerland, and Airtour Austria from Austria. I was also the local ship Agent for some luxurious sailing yachts such as the "Atlantis" and "Swan fan Makkum" from Holland.Deutsch: Meine erste Anstellung im Gastgewerbe war als Nacht Rechnung-prüfer beim St. Lucia Beach Hotel, dann bei Holiday Inn, das kürzlich als St. Lucian Hotel bekannt war, als Nacht Rechnung-prüfer und stellvertretender Empfangschef, und schließlich beim Steigenberger Cariblue Hotel, das derzeit als Le Sport Hotel bekannt ist, als der erste Nacht Rechnrungs-prüfer, Reservierungs-und Empfangschef.1976 reiste ich nach Deutschland, um eine Ausbildung zu absolvieren. Während meiner Ausbildung im Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof in Frankfurt und im Ritters Parkhotel in Bad Homberg in Deutschland habe ich mich intensiv und erfolgreich im täglichen Unterricht an der Internationalen inlingua Sprachschule im Frankfurt am Main engagiert, um meine Deutschkenntnisse zu verbessern. Meine Berufserfahrung wurde durch Einsätze an der Rezeption, der Reservierungsabteilung und der Empfangskasse intensiviert und erweitert. Ich habe Grundkenntnisse in den Bereichen Kasse / Bank, in der EDV-Debitorenführung, bei Tagesabschlüssen und Abrechnung mit Reisebüros erworben.1980 verstärkte sich mein Interesse, mein Heimatland zu bedienen, als ich bemerkte, dass so viele ausländische Besucher die Insel aus Deutschland, der Schweiz und Österreich besuchten und es keine einheimischen deutschsprachigen Führer gab, die den Gästen die Umgebung zeigten. Ich trat von meiner Position als Empfangschef zurück, nutzte die Gelegenheit und eröffnete meine eigene Reisebüro"Joseph`s Touring Service Ltd." Ich hatte die Möglichkeit, Reisebüros aus Deutschland, der Schweiz und Österreich zu vertreten: Ich vertrat Unternehmen wie "Airtours International", "Air Charter Market", "A.D.A.C" (Allgemein Deutche Automative Club) aus Deutschland, "Imholz" und "Carib Tours" aus der Schweiz und "Airtour Austria" aus Österreich. Ich war auch der lokale Schiffsagent für einige luxuriöse Segelyachten wie die "Atlantis" und "Swan Fan Makkum" aus Holland.

This book differs from most previous studies of the Pearl poet by treating all of his works as a whole. Prior’s purpose is to identify the underlying poetics of this major body of English poetry. Drawing on both the visual imagery of medieval art (the study includes 18 full-page illustrations) and the verbal imagery of the Bible and other literary sources, Prior shows how the poet’s "fayre formez" are the result of a coherent and self-conscious view of the artist’s craft.
