Primary Sources: Le Morte D’Arthur, Book II Chapter III — 5 Comments

    • Seems I screwed up the html. The understatement I reference is, of course, the LotL’s reference to the fact that the real jousting descriptions haven’t even started yet.

  1. I love the feeling that most of the story is happening offscreen and we’re following around some guy who hasn’t got a clue what’s going on and what the story is.

  2. Shouldn’t there be some sort of consequence to Arthur that the exact opposite of what the LOTL asked for occurs? Seems there is an unfulfilled promise made to obtain Ex Calibur and its blood-holding-in scabbard (medieval Viagra?). Maybe there will be a terrible event in Chapter XII of Book MCMLXXXVIII.
