SherryThompson: If you enjoyed reading Roger Lancelyn Green's account of the Arthurian legends, and are ready for a challenge in reading 20th century verse written about the same time, I suggest Charles Williams' 2 small books of verse, combined here with Lewis' patient explanation of each poem in the cycle.

[Author's Note] No writer can rival Malory as the storyteller of the Morte D 'Arthur as he told it almost exactly five hundred years ago--but the great legends, like the best of the fairy tales, must be retold from age to age: there is always something new to be found in them, and each retelling brings them freshly and more vividly before a new generation - and therein lies their immortality.
This is Roger Lancelyn Green's retelling of Malory's Morte Darthur, published in several editions. Do not combine with any other books of the same title or any other Malory adaptations. Do not combine with "King Arthur's Court" by the same author, which is an abridgement.
