Lawrence. Proof of the Arthurian legends timeless appeal is the fact that scarcely a year goes by without a new adaptation. Published in 1485, Sir Thomas Malorys epic poem Le Morte dArthur became the standard source for future Arthurian works such as Idylls of the King by Lord Tennyson and T.H. Whites The Once and Future King.With its expressive, vigorous dialogue, Le Morte dArthur resounds with colloquial liveliness and ceremonious dignity, the style for a 15th-century gentleman. This audio recording grips the listener with the fascinating, fateful story of Arthurs ascension to the throne as a boy, his marriage to Guenevere, the formation of the Round Table Knights, the quest for the Holy Grail, the ill-fated passion between Lancelot and Guenevere, the treachery of Arthurs illegitimate son Mordred, and the ultimate destruction of Arthurs realm.A superb story of adventure, love, honor, and betrayal, Le Morte dArthur is filled with dramatic power and deep, tragic irony.
