9780451531490: Le Morte D'Arthur: King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table (Signet Classics)

From the incredible wizadry of Merlin to the passion of Gwynevere and Sir Lancelot, these tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table offer epic adventures with the supernatural as well as timeless battles with our own humanity.

In a time when there were damsels in distress to save and mythical dragons to slay, King Arthur and his knights were there to render justice in the face of any danger. 

Keith Baine's splendid rendition of Le Morte d'Arthur faithfully preserves the original flavor of Malory's masterpiece—that of banners and bloodshed, knights and ladies, Christians and sorcerers, sentiment and savagery. It remains a vivid medieval tapestry woven about a central figure who symbolizes the birth of an age of chivalry.

Includes an Introduction by Robert Graves
and an Afterword by Christopher Cannon

About the Author:

Sir Thomas Malory was born in approximately 1410 and is believed to have been a knight serving under the Earl of Warwick.  For a few years he was a member of Parliament but ultimately spent several long terms in prison for a variety of crimes, including robbery and assault. He completed Le Morte d’Arthur, the first great English prose epic, in Newgate Prison around 1469-70, shortly before his death. The book was eventually published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer.
 
Keith Baines was born in London, England. He studied at private schools in London and Hampshire, at the 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 appeared in periodicals both in the United States and the United Kingdom. He died in 1986.
