Let’s extend our Le Morte D’Arthur reading, shall we?

I’ve heard from several fellow readers who are still immersed in the August selection.  Not to worry, I say.  The beauty of starting a reading project?  You can always tweak it.  I propose that we extend Le Morte D’Arthur into the month of September.

For those of you who have difficulty with the text or have lost interest, you can give an adapted version a chance.  Or perhaps T.H. White’s The Once and Future King?  If you read another adaptation, let me know if you like it.  I’d like to pass it on to others.

You may want to visit arthurian-legend.com, which has a nice overview of Le Morte.

  1. Hi Stephanie 🙂
    Having been a huge fan and collector of Arthurian texts for many years, I thought I would add one of my favourite series to your recommended reading list: They are the books by Mary Stewart: The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment and The Wicked Day.
    Another favourite is Pendragon by Catherine Christian.

    I think the very first text I read was The Once And Future King which I loved and then years later was excited to find “The Book of Merlyn” also by T.H. White which is the conclusion of The Once and Future King, but it was published separately and posthumously.

    Here are some other titles from my shelves:
