Tales of King Arthur and the Round Table

Andrew Lang

Book Overview: 

The tales of King Arthur and his Knights are of Celtic origin. The Celts were the people who occupied Britain at the time when the history of the country opens… It is believed that King Arthur lived in the sixth century, just after the Romans withdrew from Britain… the stories came to be handed down from father to son, in Brittany (whose people are of the same family as the Welsh) as well as in Wales and England… [story-tellers altered the stories to suit their times down through the centuries] …and so in their altered and historically inaccurate form they have reached us at the present day. …Sir Thomas Malory obtained the material for his “Morte d’Arthur,” which was written in 1470. This is the most famous of the early books of Arthurian legend, and it is from the “Morte d’Arthur” that most of the stories in this book are taken…. The language throughout has been modified with a view to making the legends more easy of study.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Alas! you have put yourself in great danger, for by your shield you should have been known. I grieve over your doom, for there is no man living that can rival you for courage and bold deeds.”

“I repent,” answered Balin, “ever having come into this country, but for very shame I must go on. Whatever befalls me, either for life or death, I am ready to take it.” Then he examined his armour, and saw that it was whole, and mounted his horse.

As he went along the path he beheld a Knight come out of a castle in front, clothed in red, riding a horse with red trappings. When this red Knight looked on the two swords, he thought for a moment it was Balin, but the shield did not bear Balin’s device. So they rode at each other with their spears, and smote each other’s shields so hard that both horses and men fell to the ground with the shock, and the Knights lay unconscious on the ground for some minutes. But soon they rose up . . . Read More

Ahh be iki gözümün çiçeği lancelot, neden bu ihanet?
Morgana ve Merlin çok geri planda kalmış bence. Nerede o eğlenceli şakalar ve büyüler yapan Merlin?
O değilde çok eskiden izlediğim bir dizi vardı ve guinevere orada hizmetçi rolündeydi. Burada ise bir kralın kızı. İronik olmuş güldüm. :))

If you enjoy damsels in distress, swooning lords and ladies, and constantly fighting knights, this is definitely the story for you.

I listened to this book as an audio while reading a different copy of King Arthur’s stories at the same time. One thing I found was that some of the stories are recounte

A great story that was written horribly!

The book was ok because the adventures that King Arthur went on were nice. The letters were a bit too small for me. Maybe I will read it again when I am older in the future.

Kral Arthur efsanesini izlediğim yapımlardan sağdan soldan okuduğum şeylerden az çok biliyorum. Kitap parça parça bize hikaye anlatıyor. Belki de hiç duymadığımız kişilerin bile hikayesini okuyoruz. Genel olarak kitaptan memnun kaldım ancak üç karakteri anlatan hikayelerin yetersiz veya neredeyse hi
