Idylls of the King

by Alfred Tennyson (Author)

A cycle of twelve narrative poems, "Idylls of the King" retells the classic legends of King Arthur and his time. Based primarily on Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur" and the classic epic poem "Mabinogion", "Idylls" is not just a copy of past works but rather an expansion of the legend, a competent and worthy addition to the genre of Arthurian literature. The twelve idylls respectively tell the stories of: The Coming of Arthur, Gareth and Lynette, The Marriage of Geraint, Geraint and Enid, Balin and Balan, Merlin and Vivien, Lancelot and Elaine, The Holy Grail, Pelleas and Ettare, The Last Tournament, Guinevere, and The Passing of Arthur.
