We Want the Dunk: Discussing the Tales of Dunk and Egg
Ser Duncan the Tall gets his turn in the spotlight in an episode
nearly as big as the man himself! At long last, Sean and I turn our
attention to “The Hedge Knight,” “The Sworn Sword,” and “The Mystery
Knight,” the three (and counting) A Song of Ice and Fire prequel
novellas starring the inexperienced young hedge knight also known as
Dunk the Lunk and his precocious, princely squire Egg. Taken together,
these stories contain some of George R.R. Martin’s best writing — and
his most tonally varied, too. Sean and I go deep into the
secret-strewn stories of Dunk and Egg themselves, the politics of the
Blackfyre Rebellion and the aftermath that overshadows the stories’
events, the genre-pastiche elements of each story, the chemistry between
the characters, our favorite and least favorite installments of the
series, and what it takes to be “a true knight.” It makes for an episode
thick as a castle wall, and, we hope, entertaining as a Dornish puppet
show. See you at the lists!
