KING ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TA­BLE

by Roger Lance­lyn Green, Penguin/ Ran­domHouse.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS -

This book was writ­ten for chil­dren in the 1950s, and was one of a se­ries of retellings of fa­mous leg­ends from his­tory mas­ter­fully sim­pli­fied for younger au­di­ences by Green, who was fit­tingly a con­tem­po­rary of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. This might be the first book of any sig­nif­i­cant length I ever man­aged to fin­ish. It weaves to­gether the bulk of the leg­ends from Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur into a sin­gle, co­gent, nar­ra­tive. Tales of chival­ric brav­ery and Chris­tian suf­fer­ing for young and old!
