Le Morte D’Arthur
Oh, Le Morte D’Arthur. I’ve been reading Thomas Malory’s take on the Arthurian legends for about four months now (it was my Classics Club Spin read back in June) but haven’t really been able to make it very far. I’ve read the first three books which totals about 117 pages but I can’t seem to get back into it. I actually have really enjoyed reading the first three books and have even typed up draft notes on the books I have read but for some reason I put it down and have never picked it back up. I’m determined to finish it by the end of this year, which is why Jean’s Le Morte D’Arthur group read-a-long couldn’t have come at a better time. Since I read the first three books a few months ago, I think I’ll start over so I can jog my memory.
*the copy I’ll be reading from is The Penguin Classics edition, edited by Janet Cowen, and is split into two physical books: Volume 1 and 2. Volume 1 covers Books 1-9 and Volume 2 covers Books 10-21.
