The glorious but tragic story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is one of the great legends of Western civilization. Storytellers and poets down the centuries have returned repeatedly to the universal themes of the Quest of the Holy Grail and the love between Sir Launcelot and Queen Guenever. Yet the first printed account, written by the 15th century knight Sir Thomas Malory, remains unmatched. In words which speak as directly to us today as they did to his own period, he brings to life a rich tale of heroism and ideals undermined by the poignancy of human emotions.

    " This book grounded me in the legends of King Arthur. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the tales of chivalry that make up so much of our early literature. It's my understanding that Malory wrote this while he was in prison. "

    " Although this is considered one of the first King Arthur books, I have to say that it was one of the most boring books that I have ever read. "
