    King arthur and his knights of the round table

    The Genre of the book is Fantasy and takes place in Europe around 1000 A.D. Some of the significant characters are Arthur: Son of Utherpendragon, became king when he was very young, wielder of the sword Excalibur, Husband of Lady Guenever, uncle of the evil Sir Mordred (main character throughout story, and is developed by his actions and his words, he is honest but not bright) Merlin the Magician, adviser of Arthur (he is almost a secondary character but has saved Arthur numerous times) Sir Launcelot du Lake, the best knight in all the land (Honest, mostly carefree, adventurer, and the No. 1 knight of the round table) La Cote Mal Taile, at first wasn't a knight but gained reputation by his cleverness and determination (clever, determined, and a hard worker, was laughed at in beginning) Sir Galahad, swore not to return until he has seen the Holy Grail (he never returned, the holy grail was taken with him to heaven). The setting: the story takes place in Europe, it is important that it takes place in Europe because its usually cool there, there is no possible way for a knight in full armor to stand the heat if the story takes place in a desert, and a knight would freeze to death if the story took place in Russia. Major Conflicts: Arthur and finding knights for his round table, Launcelot and killing his enemies/ winning tournaments/ and keeping his sanity, Merlin and trying to keep Arthur alive and out of trouble, La Cote Mal Taile and trying to prove himself to the other knights, Sir Galahad and his quest to seek the holy grail. Writer's style: the story is arranged in chronological order with nothing special, it is a fiction book. The original book was written in old English by a Knight waiting to be executed for his crimes. It was edited so people that can't read old English can read it. Significant quotation: ''That is the Lady of the Lake,' said Merlin, 'and this damsel will come to you anon, and then speak ye fair to her that she will give you that sword.'' This quotation is significant because this is the place where Arthur gets the legendary sword Excalibur, and his ascension to becoming the most powerful and noble king in all the land. Throughout the story, it is told in third person, and it would be impossible for the reader to understand the book and follow along if it was told any other way. This book is well written considering where and when (it was written before anything that resembled modern books) it was written. Although it has none of the plot or story elements of today's book (romance, blood and gore, space battles, huge ground battles, ect) I give my recommendation for it.
