  • Legend of King Arthur?

    Hello all!!!! I have been doing an internet search, but, thought that one of you might help me....I'm interested in the story of King Arthur...can anyone tell me if there is a book that tells the legend? I have wondered this for some time, but, it's one of those things that hides in the back of your brain and only pops up occasionally. This time, I was near a computer......so, any information you have....thanks.


    Also, if any of you can recommend a book on ancient Greek or Roman mythology.......or Eygptian history....I'd love that too. Thanks again.

    T.H White's the Once and Future King I beleive is the main version that most people turn too for Arthur.

    As for mythology? I am always leaning towards Bernard Evslin's Heroes, Gods, and Monsters of the Greek Myths. Most of the famous ones, easy to understand.

        It depends on what version of the legend you want I guess. T H White's book is very good and is taken from the "historical" text "L'Mort d' Arthur" by (I think) Thomas Mallory and thats where we get the "romantic" version of the tale with knights in shining armor and all that.

        Marrion Zimmer-Bradleys "Mists of Avalon" was painstakenly researched (I met her and was able to talk to her about the prep she did) and it shows a pretty accurate view of life during the time that historians believed the real Arthur lived in Briton, though it is a "different" telling of the "popular" version of the legend.

        For non-fiction Geoffrey Ashe's book "King Arthur in Fact and Legend" is pretty good.

        It's a great subject, have fun reading about it!

          I really like a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. It's fiction (of course) but touches on a lot of the King Arthur stuff.
