The Classic Guide to King Arthur

Series: Classic Guides (3)
The Classic Guides series has a user-friendly, magazine-style format with bullet points and box-out breaking up the text. This informative book discusses the main Arthurian legends, the characters and the symbolism of the legend throughout the ages, including a belief during the War that King Arthur would return to defend Britain, plus the Kennedy 'Camelot' administration. It reveals the role of Camelot, Excalibur and Merlin, together with the morally confusing Age of Chivalry and the representation of the Grail. Arthurian enthusiast, Dr Keith Souter, also examines the stories of Arthur and his knights in literature, art, film and TV and why we're still captivated with this centuries' old legend. He also reveals where, exactly, King Arthur is said to be buried.
