Meet the Author

Sir Thomas Malory (c. 1405 – 1471) was an English writer, the author or compiler of Le Morte d'Arthur. The antiquary John Leland (1506–1552) as well as John Bale believed him to be Welsh, but most modern scholars, beginning with G. L. Kittredge in 1894,[1] assume that he was Sir Thomas Malory of Newbold Revel in Warwickshire, who was a knight, land-owner and Member of Parliament. He appears to have collected these long-known tales (which developed between Great Britain and Britanny over several centuries) while imprisoned.
U. Waldo Cutler (d. 1861?) adapted and modernized Malory's versions of the Arthurian tales for a more general audience.
