(The Unknown Arthur: Forgotten Tales of the Round Table.pdf) The tales and legends of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table remain one of the most enduring aspects of the Middle Ages The stories as we know them today emerged from an eleventh century melting pot of folk tradition and myth refined and changed over the following five hundred years in poems dramas and often repeated tales br br The main source for the most commonly told stories remains the early classic twelfth century account of Geoffrey of Monmouth and the subsequent embroidery of Thomas Malory and even later Tennyson s i Idylls of the King i with it s Victorian knights and their silken clad ladies br br Yes these depictions are only a part of the whole phenomena of the legends Indeed with Arthur himself a probable composite of at least three different figures from history and legend there are dozens of other source texts which begin to give us a different picture and new stories Yet these important aspects of the Arthurian Legend are scarcely ever even referred to in contemporary versions of the stories br br Now for the first time in a modern readable form an Arthurian expert produces the fruits of research into these texts many obscure and some never before translated into English to provide a whole new collection of tales No less exciting or intriguing than their more familiar counterparts the twelve selected here are each retold in a modern style preceded by a commentary and introduced to their source and significance br br Not only will they be a pleasant surprise to even the most knowledgeable Arthurian enthusiast but they are also an inspiration to re examine the whole cycle of the legends and to look again at the original sources With a series of specially created colour plates by artist Mark Robertson this is both ans an entertaining and informative insight into medieval life with its dreams and interlinked spirituality of the characters and storiesDownload and Read Online books ePub/PDF/Audible/Kindle, its easy way to streaming The Unknown Arthur: Forgotten Tales of the Round Table books for multiple devices.
