Le Morte Darthur The Seventh Eighth Tales Book Description:

"P. J. C. Field, the world's preeminent Malory specialist, has wisely chosen to offer here Malory's seventh and eighth tales, recounting the decline and end of Camelot. The authoritative text is accompanied by indispensable notes and preceded by a remarkably thorough and learned--but never obscure--Introduction sufficient to prepare students and other readers to profit fully from the texts. This book is ideal for those coming to Malory for the first time and a distinct pleasure for those who already know him well." --Norris J. Lacy, E. E. Sparks Professor of French and Medieval Studies, Penn State University "An extended introduction treats the Arthurian legend and Malory's sources, as well as the cultural contexts of the book, including the probable events of Malory's own life. The commentary is expanded from the first edition to offer detailed explanatory notes. Unfamiliar terms are glossed at the bottom of the page and a full glossary included. The scholarship is, as would be expected from Malory's great modern editor and biographer, comprehensive and impeccable." --Medium Aevum
