Book Excerpt: 
. . .The damsel bringeth Sir Launcelot to freedom.

So, having arranged all these matters, the damsel Elouise opened the door of that room and led Sir Launcelot out thence; and she led him through various passages and down several long flights of steps, and so brought him at last unto a certain chamber, where was his armor. Then the damsel helped Sir Launcelot to encase him in his armor, so that in a little while he was altogether armed as he had been when he fell asleep under that apple-tree. Thereafter the damsel brought him out past the court-yard and unto the stable where was Sir Launcelot's horse, and the horse knew him when he came. So he saddled the horse by the light of a half-moon which sailed like a boat high up in the sky through the silver, floating clouds, and therewith he was ready to depart. Then the damsel opened the gate and he rode out into the night, which was now drawing near the dawning of the day.

Thus Elouise the Fair aid. . . Read More

An absolute delight! Howard Pyle was my introduction to the Arthurian legends when I was just a young whippersnapper and still my favorite.

O livro é narrado em palavras e imagens pelo ilustrador e escritor Howard Pyle.

A primeira vez que tive contato com as crônicas do Rei Arthur foi com aquele filme clássico da Disney, A espada era a lei. A segunda vez foi ao ler As Brumas de Avalon da Marion Zimmer Bradley (de longeee minha versão favorita). A terceira foi ao ler O rei do inverno pelo Bernard Cornwell, que não m

The second of Pyle’s four-volume rendition of the Arthur legend, herein we experience some general knight errantry.

In particular we are introduced to Mr. Chivalry, Launcelot of the Lake, complete with fay origins.

Tristram and the Belle Isoult get their time to cry.

Likewise Percival slaps Kay for his

Que livro maravilhoso! Ansiosa pela continuação! Todos os homens desde de criança devem lê! Pois fala muito forte sobre honra, dever etc.

Pyle’s tales of the knights of the round table were surprisingly pleasant and engaging. The stories of Sir Launcelot were alright, Sir Tristram phenomenal, and Sir Percival delightful. The illustrations were lovely too. The biggest let down were some of the ending. They were great tales, but I’d fin

En mi opinión, una buena adaptación de las leyendas artúricas de Howard Pyle y una buena edición (aun no siendo la original), con ilustraciones en blanco y negro del autor. Como siempre en el género artúrico, critico el sexismo y los roles y estereotipos de género, el contenido religioso problemátic

I freaking enjoyed everything in this book, starting from the simple narration to the illustrations.
