Tales of King Arthur and the Round Table

Author: Andrew Lang
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1522951490
Release Date: 2015-12-27
Genre:

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. - Summary by Book Introduction and david wales.

Guinevere and Lancelot

Author: Zelko Smith
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1535449047
Release Date: 2016-07-22
Genre:

The King Arthur-Lancelot-Guinevere legend is known, and so re-tellings of it tend to amplify its magnitude for dramatic appeal or provide as-yet-unknown details that flesh out new terrain. But the charm of the legend is that there are conflicting accounts, stories in multiple languages that over hundreds of years have become authentic and primary in themselves. This is where Guinevere and Lancelot fit in. The characters are here, the ones we expect, like King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Gawain, Perceval, as are the adventures, like kidnapping, swordplay, and romantic intrigue. But unlike other stories, we have in Guinevere and Lancelot a departure into landscapes, psychology, and dialogue worthy of the legend. We get real anxiety, complacency, vanity, desperation. King Arthur sees his fate, knows he is helpless against it, and so seeks to erase his fate by accelerating through it. Lancelot's dynamism comes from how casual he is, how complacent, as he seems comfortable with being pinned down by his duty. And Guinevere, who finally gets proper attention, is not just a trophy to be won, but takes charge of her own destiny, finally. Guinevere and Lancelot is a modern tale, and it is what we want when we say to someone, please, tell us a story.
