King Arthur (Myths and Legends) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Despite his enduring popularity, King Arthur remains the most enigmatic of Britain's legendary heroes. In this new book, author Dan Mersey retells the great stories of Arthur, while exploring the different facets of Arthurian myth, from the numerous, conflicting theories of his historical origin, through the tales of Welsh folklore and Medieval romance, and concluding with an examination of his various portrayals in the modern media. Presented with both classic and newly commissioned artwork, this book is an easy-to-read, yet highly detailed introduction to the complex body of myth and legend that surrounds Britain's greatest hero.

About the Author

Daniel Mersey is the author of Dux Bellorum and Song of Arthur and Merlin, two rulesets covering various aspects of Arthurian legend, from the historical to the Hollywood. Daniel is a keen historian of the period and has written on the subject of King Arthur extensively.
