Amazon.com description: Product Description:
This rousing collection of tales offers readers an adventure-packed introduction to the legendary King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Retold by the famous American poet and writer Sidney Lanier, the stories are adapted from Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, written in the15th century. The tales are told in the style and language of the original.
Readers will thrill to the glorious adventures of Arthur and his knights: the mysterious birth of Arthur, how Arthur pulled the sword from the stone to become King of England, Sir Percival's search for the Holy Grail, the tragic romance of Tristram and Isolde, Launcelot's gallant battle to save Queen Guenevere from a death sentence, and Arthur's final struggle with the evil Sir Mordred.
These stories capture the age-old drama and romance surrounding the fabled king and his followers, all sworn to uphold lofty ideals of courage, honesty, loyalty, and devotion. This inexpensive volume invites a new generation of readers to enjoy these time-honored tales of gallant knights and fair ladies.
These stories have inspired numerous film adaptations, including the 2017 release King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.
