Thomas Malory, knight, adventurer, and soldier, was born in the early years of the fifteenth century and died on March 14, 1471, having spent much of the last twenty years of his life in prison. It was there that he wrote most, if not all, of his works, completing the last in about 1470. Some fifteen years later William Caxton published the entire collection of his tales in one volume, "Le Morte Darthur."

Review:


"I admire both the introduction and the selections."--David Wallace, University of Minnesota


"Excellent intro - the illustrations are a nice touch as well. An update of the bibliographical essay (it goes only as late as 1971) is my only suggestion for improvement. I will definately use it again next spring for my intro. to medieval English literature class."--Robert W. Barrett, Jr., University of Pennsylvania


"Invaluable selection from the greatest English Arthurian work, and indispensable foundation for the study of the contemporary legend."--Professor Thomas A. Shippey, St. Louis University


"I've used this book for years."--Deborah J. Hyland, St. Louis University


"The best student edition of Malory available. It cleaves Keith Baines's limp translation from the brain pan to the saddle bow."--Lan Lipscomb, Troy State University, AL
