Le Le Morte D'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory

Le Le Morte D'Arthur King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table

By Sir Thomas Malory
3 Contributors

For over 1,000 years, tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have enthralled people, among them Henry VIII and T.E. Lawrence. Proof of the Arthurian legend's timeless appeal is the fact that scarcely a year goes by without a new adaptation. Published in 1485, Sir Thomas Malory's epic poem "Le Morte d'Arthur" became the standard source for future Arthurian works such as "Idylls of the King" by Lord Tennyson and T.H. White's "The Once and Future King." With its expressive, vigorous dialogue, "Le Morte d'Arthur" resounds with colloquial liveliness and ceremonious dignity, the style for a 15th-century gentleman. This audio recording grips the listener with the fascinating, fateful story of Arthur's ascension to the throne as a boy, his marriage to Guenevere, the formation of the Round Table Knights, the quest for the Holy Grail, the ill-fated passion between Lancelot and Guenevere, the treachery of Arthur's illegitimate son Mordred, and the ultimate destruction of Arthur's realm. A superb story of adventure, love, honor, and betrayal, "Le Morte d'Arthur" is filled with dramatic power and deep, tragic irony.
