The Age of Chivalry, Thomas Bulfinch’s masterpiece of history and fable, recounts the legend of Arthur and the Round Table. A timeless tale retold by Milton, Dryden, Tennyson, and writers before and since, the Arthurian legend has metamorphosed from medieval Welsh texts to the French vernacular romances of Chrétien de Troyes, from obscure histories of a British chieftain of the fifth or sixth century to a chronicle of the advent of Christendom in the British Isles. In addition to revivifying these heroes, Bulfinch discusses their role in literature and art and explains the historical events and the worldview of the civilization that created them.

    " Again, not the edition I have.

    Good read. Nice introduction to the ledgends of Arthur and the age of chivalry. Especially for young readers this is good. "

    " I didn't finish reading it--it's too dry. It's a good reference book and it could be helpful if you needed to brush up on any Arthurian stories, but it's just so boring that it doesn't matter how many times you re-read a passage, you can be sure to fall asleep. "

    " Dry, no excitement. Not a big fan of Bullfinch. However, it is concise and gives the information on the myths.
    Depending on what you are looking for, an interesting read or information, will determine whether or not you like it. "

    " interesting, although a bit crusty at times. i couldn't keep track of who was doing what, as various persons were presented in something of a blur. but i like reading on knights and chivalry and machismo. "
