Morte d'Arthur Summary

Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory

Blending myth and magic, Morte D'Arthur is the story of King Arthur's attempt to unite his country, from pulling the sword from the stone to the establishment of the Round Table and the Quest for the Holy Grail. It traces the adultery of Lancelot and Guinevere and ultimately the death of the 'once and future king'. Malory's classic telling of the Legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is a cornerstone of English literature, and has captured the imagination of generations, inspiring writers from Tennyson to Tolkien. It has now been dramatised for the stage by one of the most acclaimed adapters of our time.
