Publisher Comments:

First published in the 1400s, these classic tales of King Arthur, Camelot, and adventures of the Knights of the Round Table are translated and presented in this edition that features a new introduction written by Nobel Prize nominee Robert Graves ("I, Claudius").

Synopsis:

From the incredible wizardry of Merlin to the undeniable passion of Sir Launcelot, these tales of Arthur and his knights offer epic adventures with the supernatural-as well as timeless battles with our own humanity.

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.

Keith Baines was born in London, England. He studied at private schools in London and Hampshire, at royal Academy of Music, and at University College, London. He fought in World War II, and after his discharge he turned to his main interest— poetry. Mr. Baines’s poems have appeared in periodicals both in the United States and the United Kingdom.
