    Betrayal of a Legend19 December 2016 You certainly have to love the occasional lyric poetry, especially when it is about the end of everybody s favourite legendary English king, Arthur Pendragon Actually, I m not sure if that is actually his last name, though it seems that this guy, and the legend that surrounds him, is much like Robin Hood he may have existed, he may not have, but a huge legend has arisen around them while there doesn t actually seem to be any consistency in these legends I Betrayal of a Legend19 December 2016 You certainly have to love the occasional lyric poetry, especially when it is about the end of everybody s favourite legendary English king, Arthur Pendragon Actually, I m not sure if that is actually his last name, though it seems that this guy, and the legend that surrounds him, is much like Robin Hood he may have existed, he may not have, but a huge legend has arisen around them while t...

    The Death of King Arthur is a surprisingly modern version of the whole Matter of Britain cycle Although it was written in the early 13th century, it dwells on the problems of kingshipthan on the mythic elements of magicians, giants, witches, Holy Grails Those elements it takes as a given rather than as a plot element of the story as it unfolds Merlin is mentioned only once The only mythic element in real time is when Excalibur is thrown into the lake, and a hand comes up from the water The Death of King Arthur is a surprisingly modern version of the whole Matter of Britain cycle Although it was written in the early 13th century, it dwells on the problems of kingshipthan on the mythic elements of magicians, giants, witches, Holy Grails Those elements it takes as a given rather than as a plot element of the story as it unfolds Merlin is mentioned only once The only mythic element in real time is when Excalibur is thrown into the lake, and a hand comes up from the water, grasps it, and takes it down.Lancelot is the real hero of the story He is guilty as charged of a...

    I was surprised to find this book on a reading list for medieval French literature King Arthur belong to British folklore, no As I did some digging, I found that the tales from Geoffrey of Monmouth s The History of the Kings of Britain which incidentally was written in Latin, not English traveled the channel into French literature, to be taken up by writers such as Chr tien de Troyes It was at this point that the warrior king reclaiming Britain from the barbarism of the Picts and the Scots I was surprised to find this book on a reading list for medieval French literature King Arthur belong to British folklore, no As I did some digging, I found that the tales from Geoffrey of Monmouth s The History of the Kings of Britain which incidentally was written in Latin, not English traveled the channel into French literature, to be taken up by writers such as Chr tien de Troyes It was at this point that the warrior king reclaiming Britain from the barbarism of the Picts and the Scots succumbed to the pressures of the French courtly love tradition and became the tragic, somewhat weak willed king of the later tales It was the French who added characters such as Lancelot and elements such as the quest for the grail.This particular volume, written anonymously in the 13th century is significant because it is the first prose telling of the Arthurian tales All previous versions had been in verse This book covers only the fourth section o...

    I don t like this as much as Simon Armitage s other Middle English translation, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight It s aserious poem, I think, less playful and rich in language, but it s still pretty amazing I can t speak for the quality of the translation right now, I haven t yet compared it with the Middle English I m sure there have been liberties taken, but I think he gets across the tone of the original poem, at least Sometim...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews.This one, I had to read for analysis My rough theme is that men s honor rests on controlling women s sexuality Now, I won t bore you further about my paper especially since it s not written yet and I haven t even started weeding through my annotations Even though I had to analyze it, it was still entertaining as hell.Mainly, it s hilarious from a 21st century standpoint I hurt my stomach from laughing over it All the knights seem to h This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews.This ...

    This book is a translation of a part of the Vulgate Cycle, unfortunately a bit from the end I really want to read that from the beginning, but this translation picks up after the end of the Grail quest It s easy enough to follow, for me, but then, I know the story inside out It s a much less fantastical narrative than some there s only one major bit of magic I can think of, and that s the hand of the Lady of the Lake catching Excalibur when Arthur has it thrown into the water at the end of This book is a translation of a part of the Vulg...
