Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An immortal story of love, adventure, chivalry, treachery and death.

Edited and first published by William Caxton in 1485, Le Morte D'Arthur is Sir Thomas Malory's unique and splendid version of the Arthurian legend. Mordred's treason, the knightly exploits of Tristan, Lancelot's fatally divided loyalties and his love for Guenever, the quest for the Holy Grail; all the elements are there woven into a wonderful completeness by the magic of his prose style.

The result is not only one of the most readable accounts of the knights of the Round Table but also one of the most moving. As the story advances towards the inevitable tragedy of Arthur's death the effect is cumulative, rising with an impending sense of doom and tragedy towards its shattering finale.

Synopsis:

Tells the stories of King Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Queen Guenever, and Tristram and Isolde in a version based on Caxton's printed edition of 1485 with modernized spellings.

Synopsis:

This May, Sir Thomas Malory's splendid version of the Arthurian legend comes to the small screen as a Hallmark NBC miniseries starring Isabelle Rossellini, Kate Nelligan, and Sam Neill.

About the Author

Sir Thomas Malory was a knight and estate owner in the mid 15th century, who spent many years in prison for political crimes as well as robbery. He wrote Le Morte d’Arthur, the first great English prose epic, while imprisoned in Nwgate. The epic was published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. Malory is believed to have died in 1471.
