Front Flap

"Chronicles of King Arthur is a re-telling of the great story-cycle of the Middle Ages known as the Matter of Britain, richly illustrated with illuminated manuscripts, woodcuts, paintings, and later representations of Arthurian themes. It tells the story of King in the voices of the great Medieval writers - Geoffrey of Monmouth, Chretien de Troyes, Wolfram von Eschenbach, Sir Thomas Malory and others - translated into modern English and skillfully woven into a continuous narrative.

"Interspersed throughout are short essays which provide an invaluable understanding of the Arthurian world - Camelot and Tintagel, characters like Merlin, Guinevere, Morgan le Fay, the original authors of the legends, codes of chivalry, troubadours, medieval tournaments.

Andrea Hopkins is an Oxford University scholar of medieval and Arthurian history with an interest in the enigmatic figures of the period. Hopkins' work includes The Sinful Knights, Knights, The Chronicles of King Arthur, The Book of Courtly Love, and Harald the Ruthless - Last of the Vikings.
