Le Morte D'Arthur (Book IV)

Week 9: Medieval Heroes - Assignments - Reading - Resources - Images


There is wide-ranging information available at the King Arthur pages at Britannia.com: "In Britannia's award-winning King Arthur section, you can visit the sites that are associated with Arthur, explore the historical evidence for his existence and discover Glastonbury, the legendary center of the Arthurian universe. Also available are original sources and texts, biographies of Arthurian characters, maps, reading lists and more."

You can find many more links in the Arthur section of the Legends website (Dueling Modems). There are also many links and resources at Merrie Haskell's Arthur website (Univ. of Michigan).

Arthuriana is an online journal of Arthur studies.

For a highly readable and modernized version of the King Arthur legends, check out 1858 Bulfinch's Mythology: The Age of Chivalry (1858).

For texts and images, one of the best sources is the Camelot Project at the University of Rochester.

The readings for this week are taken from Le Morte de Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory. Here are some online resources for Malory's Arthur:
