Le Mort d'Arthur: Volume 2

Sir Thomas Malory

Book Overview: 

Le Morte d’Arthur (spelled Le Morte Darthur in the first printing and also in some modern editions, Middle French for la mort d’Arthur, “the death of Arthur”) is Sir Thomas Malory’s compilation of some French and English Arthurian romances. The book contains some of Malory’s own original material (the Gareth story) and retells the older stories in light of Malory’s own views and interpretations. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d’Arthur is perhaps the best-known work of English-language Arthurian literature today. Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their source, including T. H. White for his popular The Once and Future King. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Book Excerpt: 
. . .And there was a Saracen knight that hight Corsabrin, and he loved the damosel, and in no wise he would suffer her to be married; for ever this Corsabrin noised her, and named her that she was out of her mind; and thus he let her that she might not be married.

CHAPTER XLVII. How Sir Palomides fought with Corsabrin for a lady, and how Palomides slew Corsabrin.

SO by fortune this damosel heard tell that Palomides did much for damosels' sake; so she sent to him a pensel, and prayed him to fight with Sir Corsabrin for her love, and he should have her and her lands of her father's that should fall to her. Then the damosel sent unto Corsabrin, and bade him go unto Sir Palomides that was a paynim as well as he, and she gave him warning that she had sent him her pensel, and if he might overcome Palomides she would wed him. When Corsabrin wist of her deeds then was he wood wroth and angry, and rode unto Surluse where the haut prince was, and the. . . Read More

At long last hath I enchieved the goodliest quest of 937 pages of Ye Olde English!

937 pages of damosels and knights smiting everych other and breaking their spears all to-brast, and tourneys and "justing" and villainous kings who traitorly slew... oops, there I go again. I'm just! so! happy! I've be

I just recently finished reading "Le Morte d'Arthur", and it was an interesting experience. It defies categorization. Not a novel, not an epic poem, not exactly a collection of myths, more than a collection of folk stories, certainly a product of a Christian imagination, but very earthy. Repetitive,

It happened one Pentecost when King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table had all assembled at the castle of Kynke Kenadonne and were waiting, as was customary, for some unusual event to occur before settling down to the feast, that Sir Gawain saw through the window three gentlemen riding tow

Very much recommend this edition -as for MORTE itself, the interminable quest for the grail drags it down, but the high points are remarkable. Lancelot and Guinevere...Tristram and Isolde...Gawain, such great characters. I come from TH White and that will always be my favorite version of this myth,

Sir Thomas Malory's "The Whole Book of King Arthur and of His Noble Knights of the Round Table", shortened thankfully by his editor to the title of the last chapter "Le Morte d'Arthur". (original English:"The Hoole Book of Kyng Arthur and of His Noble Knyghtes of The Rounde Table") Most scholars con

The ultimate piece of Arthurian legend? Perhaps.

It took me a quarter of a century as a passionate lover of mythology and fantasy to read Le Morte d'Arthur, and in the end I only did so because I've started regularly encountering and listening to people who know much more about Arthurian literature t

«Το 1485 ο τυπογράφος Γουίλιαμ Κάξτον στην Αγγλία τύπωσε ένα ογκωδέστατο βιβλίο, το οποίο έμελλε αργότερα να θεωρηθεί το πρώτο αγγλικό μυθιστόρημα. Ηταν Ο θάνατος του Αρθούρου του Τόμας Μάλορι. Ο συγγραφέας ήταν ιππότης, με άλλα λόγια αξιωματικός, στην υπηρεσία του κόμη του Γουόργουικ. Πρέπει να έλα

Αν και στην αρχή με απογοήτευσε η έντονη επανάληψη γεγονότων, μια πιο προσεκτική ματιά σε κάθε κεφάλαιο και με τις διάφορες πληροφορίες/ερμηνείες που βρήκα στο διαδίκτυο κατανόησα και εντόπισα τον τεράστιο πλούτο του συγκεκριμένου βιβλίου.
