Summary:

THe legendary Tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is a superb story of adventure, love , honor, and betrayal. Published in 1485, Le Morte d'Arthur is filled iwth dramatic power and deep, tragic irony. This audio adaptation of Malory's epic poem grips the listener with the fateful story of Arthur's ascension to the throne as a boy, his marriage to Guenevere, the formation of the Knights of the Round Table, the quest for the holy grail, the ill-fated passion between Guenevere and Lancelot, the treachery of Arthur's illegitimate son Mordred, and the ultimate destruction of Arthur's realm.

    Jacobi's narration really makes Morte come alive. I was shocked by how readable, how moving this dusty book could be. I don't know how I came by the impression that it would be tiresome and outdated, but I have to say that it wasn't bad at all.

  • John Mosby

    Le Morte D'Arthur retells, ever so poetically, the florid details of that famous Round Table. English in this piece is deconstructed quite beautifully here and there throughout the stories, that it becomes a kind of subplot for me. The characters are all heroic, whether good or bad, and developed in a stout manner which adds to the parts of this entire statuesque legend. Sir Mallory makes me enthralled to be heir to the English tongue and culture.
