“Poor Sir Dominick. Faithless, feeble Sir Dominick
Some stains you cannot clean from your soul“
The heir to a fortune squanders his inheritance on wine and gambling. Destitute and alone, he makes a desperate bargain with a gentleman he meets one midnight. For seven years he will have all the riches he craves. But what will happen to him, what will become of him when those seven years are done?
Sheridan Le Fanu’s story of a man’s pact with the devil is retold in 14 poems by Rufus Woodward.
‘Sir Dominick’s Bargain’ is Chapbook number one of four volumes published by the Olgada Press.
