About the Author

Sir Thomas Malory, 1405 - 1471 Sir Thomas Malory's works (consisting of the legends of Sir Lancelot, Sir Gareth, Sir Tristram, and the Holy Grail, as well as the stories of King Arthur's coming to the throne, his wars with the Emperor Lucius, and his death) are the most influential expression of mostrar mais Arthurian material in English. The author's sources are principally French romances; his own contributions are substantial, however, and the result is a vigorous and resonant prose. "Le Morte d'Arthur," finished between March 1469 and March 1470, was first printed in 1485 by William Caxton, the earliest English printer. Malory is presumed to have been a knight from an old Warwickshire family, who inherited his father's estates about 1433 and spent 20 years of his later life in jail accused of various crimes. The discovery of a manuscript version of "Le Morte d'Arthur" in 1934 in the library of Winchester College, supported the identification of Malory the author with Malory the traitor, burglar, and rapist. It showed that many of the inconsistencies in the printed text were traceable to the printing house rather than to the author. The most reliable modern version, therefore, is one like Eugene Vinaver's that is based on the Winchester manuscript. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

I found this hard work and was rather pleased that it was all over in 49 pages. At least this little, short book allowed me to dip in to the legend of King Arthur and gave me no reason to return to the legend! There was a lot of swooning going on in the age of chivalry!

Abandoned. Thought I could do it, but turns out there's only so much "Sir Bleow-alot unhorsed Sir Palami-wain, Sir Launce-tram unhorsed Sir Perci-had" that a man can take in one lifetime.

The first time I read this I was a college student immersed in literature. I loved the language and imagery, truly felt transported to another time and place. With this second reading I see James Bond. Arthur roams the countryside, bedding/leaving damsels, fighting/killing whatever gets in his way, getting himself wrapped up in conspiracies and evil plots, all without losing his smirk. OK, maybe Malory doesn't mention the smirk, but you know it's there.

Sintetizar a obra de Sir Thomas Malory :”A morte do Rei Artur” é uma enorme tarefa. Nesta adaptação de Ana Maria Machado, para leitores a partir dos 11 anos, é-nos apresentado em traços largos a lenda do rei Artur e deixa-nos com um gostinho para ler mais. É uma boa primeira abordagem.
