KNIGHTHOOD IN THE MORTE D'ARTHUR, Kennedy, Beverly
3 Kennedy, Beverly KNIGHTHOOD IN THE MORTE D'ARTHUR
(Cambridge): D.S. Brewer, (1985). 0859911780 / 9780859911788 First edition. Hardcover in dust jacket. Fine; in a near fine, dust jacket with mild fading to the spine and fore-edges. 
Octavo. 394 pages; notes, bibliography and index. Professor Kennedy puts Malory's concern with knighthood at the very heart of the Morte D' Arthur. She identifies three types of knight: the Heroic (Gawain), the Worshipful (Tristram and Arthur), and the True (Lancelot, Gareth and the Grail Knights), and argues that this knightly typology creates the thematic unity of the Morte D'Arthur. It also allows Malory to develop two quite different contexts, one pragmatic and political, the other religious and providential, within which the reader may judge why Arthur's reign ended in catastrophe. Arthurian Studies XI.

ARTHUR'S KINGDOM OF ADVENTURE: The World of Malory's Morte d'Arthur, Whitaker, Muriel
4 Whitaker, Muriel ARTHUR'S KINGDOM OF ADVENTURE: The World of Malory's Morte d'Arthur
(Cambridge): D.S. Brewer/Barnes & Noble (1986). 0859911659 / 9780859911658 Reprint. Hardcover in dust jacket. Fine in a fine dust jacket. 
Notes & indexes. Illustrated with plates. The setting of medieval Arthurian romance, as typified by Malory's Morte D' Arthur, plays an important part in the creation of the atmosphere of the stories, and in intensifying the drama of the action. Professor Whitaker looks at the Arthurian world which Malory inherited form his sources and to which he added his own details, and examines its different aspects: castles and forests, kingdoms and empires, showing how these diverge from reality to meet the particular requirements of romance, how new political and temporal relationships are set up for the same reason, and how it was shaped by the presence of the Otherworld in the Celtic stories from which many episodes were drawn. Arthurian Studies X.
