In a time when there were damsels in distress to save and mythical dragons to slay, King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table were there to render justice in the face of any danger. From the incredible wizardry of Merlin to the undeniable passion of Sir Launcelot, these tales of Arthur and his knights offer epic adventures with the supernatural as well as timeless battles with our own humanity.
Keith Baines's splendid rendition of Le Morte d'Arthur faithfully preserves the original flavour of Malory's masterpiece – that of banners and bloodshed, knights and ladies, Christians and sorcerers, sentiment and savagery. It remains a vivid medieval tapestry woven about a central figure who symbolises the birth of an age of chivalry.

After a while all the "adventure" feels really formulaic and kind of blends together. Read full review

About the author (2001)

Sir Thomas Malory was a knight and estate owner in the mid 15th century, who spent many years in prison for political crimes as well as robbery. He wrote Le Morte d'Arthur, the first great English prose epic, while imprisoned in Nwgate. The epic was published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. Malory is believed to have died in 1471.
Keith Baines was born in London, England. He studied at private schools in London and Hampshire, at royal Academy of Music, and at University College, London. He fought in World War II, and after his discharge he turned to his main interest-- poetry. Mr. Baines's poems have appeared in periodicals both in the United States and the United Kingdom.
