Annotations for Le Morte D'Arthur


David Brown Book Co
A new and unabridged edition of what is arguably the finest Arthurian romance, written by a colourful knight in the late 15th century. This volume presents the Caxton version, with Caxton's preface, romantically illustrated by Anna-Maria Ferguson. The introduction discusses the authenticity of the two different versions as well as the candidates for authorship. However, Matthews bases his opinions on a rather idealised reading of what is still an energetic, robust and thoroughly enjoyable narrative.

A blessed king who strives for peace and justice; the round table where only the most gallant knights may sit; the dramatic quest for the Holy Grail; a fateful romance that destroys a dream: the epic story of King Arthur never fails to stir the imaginations of readers everywhere. This outstanding illustrated version adds to Sir Thomas Malory's skillful recounting with original artwork that creates a unique vision of Camelot. Some of these breathtaking, elaborate watercolors and pens-and-inks have hung in museums, including the depiction of the Tintagel Castle, the Sword in the Stone, Merlin and Nimue, and Guenevere rescued from the stake. With remarkable accuracy, Anna-Marie Ferguson captures every nuance of the historical period-the knights' shining armor, the intricate architecture, and the English forests with their abundant flora and fauna. Yet she also revels in the fantasy, with mysterious and magical landscapes, misty and moonlit. These legends have always been a treat for the mind-and now they are a feast for the eyes, too.
