Product Description

The influence of Geoffrey of Monmouth's History can be seen in the works of Shakespeare, Malory, Dryden and Tennyson. Comprised of history, myth and legend, Geoffrey tells the story of Britian from its founding by Brutus to the death of Cadwallader in A.D. 689. Written in 1136, early events are corresponded with biblical events and rulers, while legendary figures such as Arthur, King Lear and giants of old make their way into history with a flourish. Translated from the original Latin, The History of the Kings of Britain is a unique look into the stories and past of the "best of islands." 372 pages, indexed with notes.
