Sean Bean Recites Poem For A Plague Tale

Publisher Focus Home Interactive has released an interesting new promo video for the game A Plague Tale: Innocence. In the video, which can be seen below, Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings star Sean Bean recites a lyric poem titled “The Little Boy Lost,” which was written by William Blake for the collection Songs of Innocence in 1789. Not something you see video game promos doing every day.

Blake’s writings were among developer Asobo Studio’s inspirations in creating the game, which follows a brother and sister named Amicia and Hugo as they navigate a world devastated by war and the Black Death. Fittingly, Black Death is also the title of another good movie Bean has starred in, so the actor has a little experience with the horrific plague.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Sean Bean doing something for a video game. He’s worked on multiple games, including recently appearing as an elusive target in Hitman 2 and voicing Martin Septim in one of my (and so many others’) all-time favorites, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Whether or not he has an actual role in A Plague Tale: Innocence is not yet clear. It’s not listed among his many IMDb credits at the moment.

Here are the words to the poem from Wiki if you want to read along:

Father! father! where are you going?
O do not walk so fast.
Speak, father, speak to your little boy,
Or else I shall be lost.

The night was dark, no father was there;
The child was wet with dew;
The mire was deep, & the child did weep,
And away the vapour flew.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is available now. You can pick up a copy on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC.

In celebration of Asobo Studio’s dark adventure, we’ve collaborated with Sean Bean for the production of a touching and intimate video dedicated to A Plague Tale. The Hollywood star demonstrates his talent with a brilliant reading of one of William Blake’s most beloved poems.

Sean Bean, best known for his work in The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, offers a touching reading of The Little Boy Lost. This deeply moving poem sublimes the stunning images from the game, and perfectly illustrates Amicia and Hugo’s journey through a war-torn medieval France. Much of William Blake’s material shares A Plague Tale’s themes of childhood innocence and loss, serving as a source of creative inspiration for the team when developing the game.
