Description

With an Introduction by Helen Moore.

The legend of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table is one of the most enduring and influential stories in world literature. Its themes – love, war, religion, treachery and family loyalty – are timeless, as are the reputations of its major characters, Arthur, Merlin, Guenever and Launcelot.

Malory’s Le Morte Darthur is a story of noble knights, colourful tournaments and fateful love, set in a courtly society which is outwardly secure and successful, but in reality torn by dissent and, ultimately, treachery. Originally published in 1485, Malory’s Le Morte Darthur is here presented in modern spelling and is accompanied by an Introduction and helpful Glossary.
