Sean Bean Gives a Dramatic Reading for new Plague Tale Trailer
I’ve been happy to see A Plague Tale: Innocence getting the attention I felt it deserves. I found it to be a thoroughly engrossing and enjoyable horror fantasy, and the grim and grounded feel (despite the hard lean on the fantastic) had a distinct Game of Thrones air to it. As if to make sure we knew that was intentional, a new trailer for Plague Tale straight up just hired Sean Bean to deliver a dramatic reading. Giving his grim English all to The Little Boy Lost, a grim and very English poem by William Blake, Sean Bean lays the scene for this tale. The poem, written in 1789, is a hallmark of “oh dear god, life is horrible and then we die” classical writing. Apparently, people have found deeper meaning in it that it may be talking about straying from God or being lead by a false shepherd into the darkness, away from God’s light. People were really obsessed with whether or not God liked you back in the day. Anyway, you can read along if you like!
Father, father, where are you goingO do not walk so fast.Speak father, speak to your little boyOr else I shall be lost,The night was dark no father was thereThe child was wet with dew.The mire was deep, & the child did weepAnd away the vapour flew.
