My fall reading list

BlogI’ve been on a bit of an King Arthur kick lately (thank you, Julie Andrews!), so I thought I’d pursue some books upon the subject.  Join me on a literary journey, won’t you?

The books I intend to read are:

The Once and Future King, by T. H. White
Idylls of the King, by Alfred Tennyson
Le Morte d’Arthur, by Sir Thomas Malory

Now I’m sure these cover a lot of the same ground.  But I’m eager to read the author’s different takes on the subject.  “Idylls” particularly is a series of poems, so they should give a unique profundity to the work.  I tried to find these as ebooks, but I might have to pick up a couple of old-fashion paper backs.

Don’t be surprise if some of this “leaks” into the Wizard of Quippley.  Don’t be surprise at all…

  1. The first and the last bits of the Morte are quite good, but the majority of the middle section of the book (the knights’ various quests) can quickly grow pretty repetitive. At least that’s how I found it, your mileage may vary.

    1. Thanks for the input! I am mostly excited about the “Idylls.” I’m hoping that the poetry will cast the stories in a new light. But I want to discover “Morte” as it is consider the “authoritative” Arthurian tome.
