"Anomandaris. That is a brave title."
Blind Gallan[src]

The prelude acts as a framing device to the rest of the story. It begins with one poet dissembling to another about truth, memory and the nature of poetry. The poet with the story to tell is revealed to be Blind Gallan as he is about to recount the tale Anomandaris to Fisher kel Tath, who has sought him out. Gallan says though that "It is not Anomander's tale alone."
