Malory's Morte Darthur. Larry D. Benson.

Malory's Morte Darthur

Cambridge, MA, and London: Harvard University Press, 1977. Hardcover. 2nd Printing. 8vo. (xiv), 289pp. Brown cloth, silver spine title, deep red endpapers. Index. A fine copy. The dustwrapper is a bit age-darkened else is very good.


Benson argues that Malory's joyous celebration of Arthurian chivalry has somehow become a dark tragedy over time. Here he reestablishes the Morte as a chivalric romance of great skill.


First printed the previous year.
