Whether based in fact or fiction, the legends of King Arthur have been the inspiration for many novels including Le Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, The Once and Future King by T. H. White, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Arthurian Saga series by Mary Stewart, and even A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain, to name just a few.

  1. Do you enjoy reading the legends of the King Arthur and the knights of the round table? I have to admit I’ve never read them. I kind of “know” them – sort of. Ohh I lie – I read a book a while ago called Parcival (Katherine Patterson?) which was a retelling of a Arthurian legend, whew!
  2. How long ago did you read them? Back in the mists of I’m not sure when exactly.
  3. Will you ever read more of them or re-read any that you’ve read before? I think I’ll add one to the ever expanding list of must reads during my break. Now of course, I’m a little worried that the little bit of knowledge I do have of these legends is gleaned from Monty Python’s The Holy Grail.
