King Arthur's death: the Middle English stanzaic Morte Arthur and alliterative Morte Arthure
Larry Dean Benson
University of Exeter, Jan 1, 1986 - Poetry - 257 pages
The Stanzaic Morte Arthur engages with the tragic implications of the chivalric love between Lancelot, Arthur and Guinevere; the Alliterative Morte Arthure with those of the aspirations of militant chivalry espoused by Arthur and his knights. The texts have been edited for readers who have little or no training in Middle English.
