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

I really liked Pyle's books, and especially this version because I typeset and published it :)

Eu li obrigada pelo colégio mesmo. Nada a declarar.

A espada na bigorna

O livro na verdade são dois. A primeira parte conta a estória do nascimento do Rei Arthur, de sua proeza em retirar a espada da bigorna e de seu casamento entre outras coisas. Na segunda parte, Howard Pyle nos conta a estória de três homens notáveis da Corte do Rei Arthur, send...more

Cheguei a ler partes dos romances de Howard Pyle quando estava às voltas com meu especial enciclopediano do Rei Arthur. Contudo, como não se tratava de uma ‘fonte primária’ - e eu tinha uma abundância de fontes e tempo limitado de pesquisa - acabei não dando prioridade a ele. Tempos depois, a edi...more

This is the second of a five volume series from my childhood that is filled willed with the adventures of the knights of the round table. Fun reading.

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 problemá...more

I think the most entertaining part of reading this was having read it after reading the first half of Don Quixote and really getting the humor there a lot better as a result.

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

Excellent story about heroes of the past.

I had fun reading the stories about the characters I had heard about for years but didn't really know.
