There is no doubt that Malory served both English literature and the Arthurian canon an enormous service with his 1469 weaving of tales into a coherent cycle. But he can get a little windy for modern taste at times. Glaser (English, Western Kentucky U.) provides readers with the stories in modern English. The index doubles as a glossary of characters.
