When the young age Arthur pulls from the stone an embedded sword that none of theknights of the kingdomcan budge, his future as the King of England is foretold. This imaginative retelling of the classic Arthurian legends recounts the story of Arthur's formation of the Knights of 4/4(12). Le Morte d'Arthur tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights at the Round Table. Arthur, who is son of King Uther Pendragon but was raised by another family, takes his rightful place as king when, as a boy, he is able to pull the sword called Excalibur from the stone. Sir Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur is probably the best know telling of the Arthurian legend. It was published in the 15th century and has been the basis for many movies. It was a compilation of the known Arthurian tales of that time. Sir Knowles took that work (about years later) and refreshes it in The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights/5(15).
About this book.
