Of all the legends of Western civilization, perhaps the glorious adventures of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are the best known. The quest for the holy grail and the undying illicit love between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere have provided inspiration for storytellers and poets down the ages, and sparked so many films and books of our own time. Fifteen-century knight Sir Thomas Malory penned the book with relish, packing his story with tales of heroism, treachery and revenge, noble suitors, beautiful princesses, dragons, sorcerers, giants, and bloody deeds of derring-do on and off the jousting field.

Author Bio: Sir Thomas Malory

Author Bio: Sir Thomas Malory

Sir Thomas Malory (1400?–1471) of Newbold Revel served with Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick; was knighted in 1442, and was elected a member of parliament in 1445. For whatever reason, he turned to a life of irresponsible violence and spent most of his last twenty years in prison until his death in 1471. It was during his imprisonment that he composed, translated, and adapted his great rendering of Arthurian material, which has served as source and influence for all succeeding Arthurian literature, including Tennyson’s Idylls of the King.
