From glimpses of the warrior king in oral tradition, to the romance hero celebrated in one of the first books ever printed in England, this text attempts to reveal the many faces of King Arthur. It explores the medieval sources through which Arthur lives and the legends surrounding him.
Everyone has heard of the Dark-Age hero Arthur, but who was he? Stories about him and his Round Table have been told and retold in numerous languages. Interest in him and his myth persists. But how did he come to have such a fine reputation? Was he really a king, or just a powerful warrior? This rich anthology of Arthurian texts, many of which are here translated into English for the first time, provides an invaluable insight into the mysterious figure of Arthur.
