The famous French knight is the subject of a continuum of stories in this second of a five-volume series. It begins with his birth to the King and Queen of Benoic and follows his beneficent kidnapping and upbringing by the Lady of the Lake and his early exploits as a knight of the Round Table. The volume ends with Lancelot's entrapment by Morgan le Fay, of whom the story says "a looser woman could not have been found." This English translation, which relies heavily on Alexandre Micha's French version ( Lancelot , 1979), is beautifully done. Filled with adventure, humor, passion, and tragedy--all the elements that make the Arthurian legend so enduring--it will delight readers from the first paragraph to the last. A standard Vulgate edition of excellent quality is here in the making. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.
