About This Item

Harmondsworth, Middlesex, England: Penguin, 1971. Mass Market Paperback. 1982 reprint. Very Good. Interior tanned, but unmarked. Spine straight and tight. Dust stains to top edge. Rubbing to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. No tears, no creases, no folds. 237 pages.

Recounting the final days of Arthur, this thirteenth-century French version of the Camelot legend is set in a world of fading chivalric glory. It depicts the Round Table diminished in strength after the Quest for the Holy Grail, and with its integrity threatened by the weakness of Arthur's own knights. Whispers of Queen Guinevere's infidelity with his beloved comrade-at-arms Sir Lancelot profoundly distress the trusting King, leaving him no match for the machinations of the treacherous Sir Mordred. The human tragedy of The Death of King Arthur so impressed Malory that he built his own Arthurian legend on this view of the court - a view that profoundly influenced the English conception of the 'great' King.
