The Morte d'Arthur

on BBC Two England

by Sir Thomas Malory, edited by John Barton
Malory's prose masterpiece was written in 1470 while he was imprisoned in Newgate Jail. He wove together the many legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and created the great romantic story of Arthur, the sword Excalibur, the treachery of his son Mordred, and the love of Lancelot for Arthur's Queen Guenevere, which has inspired painters, poets and writers throughout the centuries.
