Description

This brisk retelling of Le Morte D’Arthur highlights the narrative drive, humor, and poignancy of Sir Thomas Malory’s original while updating his fifteenth-century English and selectively pruning over-elaborate passages that can try the patience of modern readers. The result is an adaptation that readers can enjoy as a fresh approach to Malory’s sprawling masterpiece. The book’s most famous episodes–the sword in the stone, the cataclysmic final battle–are all here, while lesser-known key episodes stand forth with new brightness and clarity. The text is accompanied by an up-to-date bibliography, including websites and video resources, and a descriptive index keyed–like the retelling itself–to the book and chapter divisions of William Caxton’s first printed edition of 1485.
