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

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,

The ultimate piece of Arthurian legend? Perhaps.

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.
