    1. Οι περιπέτειες και η εποχή ενός θρύλου-βασιλιά, ξαναζωντανεύουν στις σελίδες του βιβλίου συνθέτοντας για πρώτη φορά μια ολοκληρωμένη ιστορία γύρω από το πρόσωπο του Αρθούρου. Χρειάζεται όμως υπομονή, φαντασία και ψάξιμο για να μεταφερθείς στον κόσμο του βιβλίου. Η έντονη [...]


    2. Όλοι γνωρίζουμε τους ιππότες της Στρογγυλής Τράπεζας (150 ήταν παρακαλώ!), ιστορίες με τον βασιλιά Αρθούρο, τον σερ-Λάνσελοτ, τον σερ-Τρίσταμ και άλλους Τις μάθαμε κυρίως μέσα από πανάκριβες παραγωγές του Χόλλυγουντ, είτε από τα αξέχαστα ΚΛΑΣΙΚΆ ΕΙΚΟΝΟΓΡΑΦΗΜΕΝΑ. Τούτο το βιβ [...]



    3. I'm reminded of the self-referential quote from William Goldman's masterpiece The Princess Bride:"Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles."Goldman may as well have been writing about Le Morte d'Arthur, which includes pretty much everything on this list.I'm glad Pe [...]


    4. What can I say about Le Morte d'Arthur that I didn't say in my review of part 1?I had to sort of force my way through it, as an essential part of my Arthurian reading. Still, I find that it wasn't worthwhile, really. I had thought it would give me insight into modern Arthurian stuff, which seemed to have little to nothing to do with most of the lays I had read. Someone said that most things are based on Le Morte, so I thought I'd check it out.I think most things are based on things based on Le M [...]


    5. Melhor do que o primeiro, mas ainda assim, aquém do esperado. Ainda estou esperançada de que a narrativa melhore com a demanda do Santo Graal, a ver vamos


    6. This is the way that Arthur ends, not with a bang but a whimper.Two volumes, almost 700 pages of relentless jousts, avoiding horses, mighty buffets (that's knights groaning under sword strokes rather than tables groaning under the weight of scotch eggs and pork pies), ladies dying for love, dwarves, more tournaments, spears breaking, the quest for the Holy Grail, page upon page of listing Knight's names, further tournaments and knightly adventures featuring jousts, Arthur and Mordred meet in pos [...]


    7. I found, when I started reading it, that this volume was more difficult than the first. I awarded it to the fact that the first third of the book is a continuation of a the story about Tristram. I didn't really know much about this knight before reading "Le Morte", but I still don't find his story all that intriguing. I feel like it was, perhaps, just another rendition of the love triangle between Lancealot, Artur and Gwen. Only this time we have zero qualms about rooting for the adulterer.Once [...]


    8. A few short words cannot express how much this book meant to me and how much the teacher who I had to read it for meant. This book holds the secrets of the universe, of our society, of our pursuit of lonliness and comradery at the same time. If you want to find the cyclic nature of our society check here, if you want to find your character flaws, check here. If you want to see the world in a whole new way, readp this one. Thank you Professor LynchRIP!


    9. I lived in an apartment building in 1989 that had a book swap on every floor. I was traveled each floor mining for literary gold-- and found it with this book. I love this book, it goes into detail on King Arthur and the knights of his court. It tells the major and minor story lines. I go back to it often.


    10. Imprescindible para los obsesionados con los ciclos artúricos, la mejor novela escrita acerca de Arturo. Compleja, enrevesada, monumental La acción se describe morosamente, a veces no avanza Sin embargo, es atrayente y sugestiva.

    12. After something of a slog through Volume I, this is where things get good. All the stories of any importance are here, from Lancelot falling for Guinevere hardcore, to his one-sided and doomed romance with Elaine, and most of all the surreal Grail sequence, in which the best knights are sent into a metaphysical "spiritual wasteland" where their own sins become their surroundings and enemies. Ending with a "Six Feet Under" style montage of character deaths and a dreamlike description of Arthur's [...]


    13. You can find a better Arthurian book to read. But I gave it four stars because it did eventually stop repeating itself and come to a decently nice conclusion.


    14. This book was hard to understand and long. It is a classic, that is true, but I cannot say that I enjoyed it very much. But, it was interesting to read about King Arthur and his knights.



    15. This is the second volume of Le Morte d'Arthur and shouldn't be seen as the second book of a trilogy, just a continuation, and not meant to be read alone. I agree with the reviewer who said this is not for the faint of heart, and few general readers are going to find this a great read. If you're looking for an absorbing, entertaining read with characters you can relate to and root for, you're absolutely, positively in the wrong place. Read instead Arthurian novels such as T.H. White's The Once a [...]


    16. Just as good as Volume 1. The Quest for the Grail takes up a little more space than I'd like, although it's necessary to reduce Launcelot--relative to his son, Galahad--or at least to define him better as a hero of this world. Redefining is what's going on here, in this second volume. Camelot was established as the best union on earth--but everything in the world, even everything that fights against the Waste Land, is flawed, sinful, lustful, hungry. To me, that's what makes Malory so rich: the [...]


    17. I first read volume one a few years back. I love fantasy and old books so I thought that I would enjoy it. I didn’t. Random knights seemed to spend all of their time seeking “worship” based on an incomprehensible set of values, women were treated horribly and most just went along with it, Merlin seems to cause death and destruction wherever he prophesied, and we really got to know any of the characters. I rated it three stars and moved on with my life. Recently I read the The Idylls of the [...]


    18. 9/14/09 - 5/10After reading some about King Arthur in the Fionavar Tapestry series, I decided to explore more. Malory's version of the Arthurian legends and the matter of Britain are one of the earliest English compilations. The books are interesting as history of the Arthurian legends, but the languange is rather stilted and the story is a bit repetitive and not too interesting. It's not a tough read, but becomes a bit boring as it devolves into a knight did this and then smote this and then di [...]


    19. I admire Malory for completing this tome, but again, I don't think I'm his ideal reader. To be honest, all that smotting bored me, but maybe some readers like the action-packed tales.I wasn't sure of the tone of the story, because I thought that the sentence"Wherefore Sir Mordred made a parliament, and called the lords together, and there he made them to choose him king; and so was he crowned at Canterbury, and held a feast there fifteen days; and afterward he drew him unto Winchester, and there [...]


    20. This volume features the quest for the Holy Grail and the death of pretty much everyone (not all related to the former). It's interesting. The characters obviously have their flaws and quirks, and women are there only to be saved and fought for. But everyone faints and everybody cries. Some parts went slower than others (the jousting tournaments - oh, when is the sports part going to end?, and the lists of "who was also there".


    21. roughly the first third of this volume is the conclusion of the tristram/beale isoud story, which gets pretty tedious with the tournament scenes involving various combinations of our heroes getting knocked off their horses. it picks up a bit with the quest for the grail, featuring a lot of weirdness, and the final act with launcelot betraying arthur is probably the best. the funniest scene is probably launcelot getting shot in the ass by an arrow by accident


    22. I liked this Arthur series. It could get a bit repetitive at times, but it was really fun to read the classic Arthurian stories. I was surprised that Disney's Sword in the Stone was as close to this version of the story as it was and that Sir Lancelot could be such a jerk :-) it was a fun read overall.


    23. It was interesting to listen to the original story of Arthur. And the ending is so sad! I also found all the old English words interesting, or at least the uses of the words anyway, they were used in a context in which the meaning of those words now days would not make sense. But from the context where they were repeatedly used you can work out what they meant then.


    24. Read both the first and second volumes in a free Kindle edition. There weren't links to the glossary, but still able to understand most of it. Now wish I had bought an annotated edition. May do that and reread but then againI have spent a very long time on this already. The books become closer to a modern idea of a story as you move through the 21 books. Thank goodness.


    25. Very handy and well done edition of the classic Arthurian legends. This book is not for the feint at heart as it is written in old english, but once you get through that roadblock there is a power to the tales that starts to shine through.


    26. Continuación y final de las andazas del rey Arturo y sus famosos caballeros de la tabla redonda. Especialmente del buen caballero Lanzarote y sus idilios con la reina Ginebra, que traerán la desgracia a todo el reino de Camelot.


    27. Interesting but with a very repetitive language. Needs to be written out loud in order to appreciate fully. I can definitely recommend downloading the audiobook on Librivox or something like it to get the rhythm of the language incorporated in your experience of the book.


    28. Better than volume one: the pace picks up increasingly towards the end, with fewer repetitions of derring-do
