The novel is prefaced with a quote from Samuel Butler: "But where Murthers and Walking Spirits meet, there is no other Narrative can come near it." (The word "
" is an archaic spelling of "murder".)
Editor Judith Skelton Grant provides a selection of letters written by Davies from the period starting in 1976 until 1995, the year of Davies' death. The letters touch on various subjects in Davies' life, including the publication of "The Cornish Trilogy" (1981 – 1988), "
and Walking Spirits" (1991), "The Cunning Man" (1994), and Davies' next novel, which was never completed.
Other changes that affected these phonemes included a shift → when followed by unstressed suffix -er. Thus Old English "fæder" became modern English "father"; likewise "mother, gather, hither, together, weather" (from "mōdor, gaderian, hider, tōgædere, weder").

Unlike most of Davies' previous novels, "The Cunning Man" was not part of a trilogy. There is some supposition, however, that had Davies lived long enough this novel and his previous novel, "
and Walking Spirits" (1991), might have constituted another trilogy. For example, "Gil" Gilmartin, the narrator of "
and Walking Spirits", reappears in "The Cunning Man" as Hullah's godson. In fact, in his introduction to "The Merry Heart" (1996), a collection of Davies' writings published posthumously, Davies' publisher, Douglas M. Gibson, tells how Davies had been researching and preparing the novel which would have followed "The Cunning Man" and would have been the third in the series. Gibson speculates that this unfinished trilogy might have been called the "Toronto Trilogy".

Two men stand by, one holding the horse and the other raising a flag to summon the doctor or warn the stewards that there has been a fall.
