Blackwell North Amer The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has held readers spellbound for some eight hundred years. It is the essence of romance: a mythical world of heroes and noble deeds, of chivalry and magic, of quests for love and honor. Yet it is a world containing the seeds of its own destruction. In Chronicles of King Arthur, Andrea Hopkins brings to life the great medeval story-cycle known as the Matter of Britain, drawing on the romance masterpieces of such writers as Geoffrey of Monmouth, Sir Thomas Malory, and Chretien de Troyes. She recounts the myths of Arthur and his knights in the authentic voices of the medieval authors. Brimming with art from illuminated manuscripts, woodcuts, paintings, and sculptures, supported by boxed essays focusing on the archetypal historical, literary, and legendary background, Chronicles of King Arthur is a rich tapestry of language and imagery, a delight for anyone who again wants to read these great captivating myths of the Western world.
