Reflecting his lifelong interest in Arthurian themes, his primary sources were Malory's "Morte d'Arthur" and the Welsh "Mabinogion". For him, the "Idylls" embodied the universal and unending war between sense and soul, and Arthur the highest ideals of manhood and kingship; an attitude totally compatible with the moral outlook of his age. This edition, based on the text authorized by Tennyson himself, contains full critical apparatus.

Composed in the fourteenth century, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight combines the hallmarks of medieval romance-pageantry, chivalry, and courtly love-with the charm of fairy tales and heroic sagas. Blending Celtic myth and Christian faith, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a Middle English masterpiece of magic, chivalry, and seduction.
Chretien de Troyes did not invent the Arthurian legend; he gave it a sophisticated literary form, establishing it as a major branch of European literature. Without Chretien we might today scarcely have heard of King Arthur and his brave company.

T. H. White retells the entire Arthurian Epic in The Once And Future King. The story takes Arthur from the glorious lyrical phase of his youth through the disillusioning early years of his years of his reign to the mature years in which his vision of hte Round Table develops into the search for the Holy Grail and finally to his weary old age. In part, T. H. White has drawn on published material which he has revised and reworked heavily to bring form and continuity to an over-all work, a tetralogy which will stand as unique and vivid and quite apart from the individual effects of the various particular books. And in part the author has created new material as enchanting as any he has set on paper.
The author of The Death of King Arthur is unknown. What is certain is that he was not the Welshman Walter Map, whose name appears at the beginning and at the end of the text. Why the true author dissembled himself behind the identity of Map, who flourished some fifty years before this poem was written, remains obscure.
The fusion of fabulous legend and Christian symbolism gives The Quest a tragic grandeur and mystical aura. The richly colorful world of the court of King Arthur is the setting for a story that was intended on another level as a guide to the spiritual life, aimed at the court rather than the cloister.
