Le Morte D'Arthur: The Whole Book of King Arthur and of His Noble Knights of the Round Table is a skillful retelling of Sir Thomas Malory's classic rendition of the Arthurian epic, first printed in 1485. Joseph Glaser (Professor of English, Western Kentucky University) applies his skill to make the fifteenth-century manuscript accessible to modern-day readers while retaining the style and spirit of the original. An up-to-date bibliography with websites and video resources and a descriptive index keyed to the book and chapter divisions of the original 1485 printing round out this excellent rendition particularly valuable to college library shelves and literature collections.
