The glorious culmination of the Arthur trilogy
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The trilogy is an ambitious and brilliantly realised work, which informs and astounds. (Joanne Owen, Borders Bookshop Bookseller Buyer's Guide Highlights, 11 Jun 03)
"¿the multi-layered conclusion to a most original trilogy¿The style is distinctive; short, kaleidoscopic chapters marked by uncluttered, precise sentences. Legend and historical fact are subtly intertwined to make an exciting medieval adventure relevant to today's conflicts and beliefs." (Lesley Agnew The Bookseller, 25 July 2003)
If you like a good historical saga then you've probably already read The Seeing Stone and At the Crossing-Places, the first two-thirds of Kevin Crossley-Holland's Arthur Trilogy. King of the Middle March weighs in at 432 pages and is a fairly chunky read...At times funny, at times magical and at times dark, King of the Middle March more than repays the effort (John Crace Guardian Children's Books Supplement, Autumn 2003)
"Crossley-Holland is, of course, a poet, and the simplicity, musicality and laconic directness of his writing reflects this." (The Independent, 31 October 2003)
"¿a dramatic conlusion to what has been a wonderfully inventive perspective on Arthurian legend¿full of contemporary relevance." (Hampstead & Highgate Express, 30 Oct 03)
"With King of the Middle March, Kevin Crossley-Holland triumphantly concludes his trilogy about the two Arthurs¿Arthur's breathless diary entries have an immediacy and wonder" (Jan Mark Times Educational Supplement, 14 Nov 03)
"¿conjures up a vivid picture of medieval life combined with the magic of Arthurian legends." (Financial Times, 29 Nov 03)
"King of the Middle March makes a fitting elegiac end to a remarkably grown-up sequence." (Guardian, 29 November 2003)
Kevin Crossley-Holland won the Carnegie Medal in 1985 for STORM. His many notable books for adults and children include poetry, classic retellings and anthologies. He has written and presented many BBC radio programmes and is a frequent speaker at schools and libraries. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
