Hey guys! Well, I had to read "The Idylls of the King" for school, along with "The Once and Future King." Both of these books are about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. "The Idylls of the King" is a collection of 13 tales, which are written in Old English. It is hard to understand at times, but it is a book full of themes, and I really enjoyed it. The MobileReference format is beautiful and is is printed in the poetic, line-by-line style. Over all, if you are up for a challenging, yet good read, I highly recommend this. By the way, I am a 9th grader, and I loved this book!

The wording and style is difficult to understand at times. Knowledge of the people, places, customs of the period might be necessary for clarity.

Tennyson was amazing and this is one of his best works. Ballad poetry at its finest. An elegant, lyrical painting with words...

This lyric poem/book was assigned for my high school English class, but was actually interesting and better reading than I expected. It challenged my vocabulary in a good way - not too overwhelming!
