This rousing collection of tales offers readers an adventure-packed introduction to the legendary King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Retold by the famous American poet and writer Sidney Lanier, the stories are adapted from Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, written in the fifteenth century. The tales are told in the style and language of the original.
