Summary
This book is the first systematic study in decades of Malory{u2019}s development of his characters in the Morte Darthur. Focusing on sixteen key figures in the most important medieval English treatment of the Arthurian saga, it examines Malory{u2019}s thematic characterization of individual rulers, knights, and ladies in keeping with the twin trajectories of his history of the Round Table and fifteenth-century English history. Looking at how Malory develops his characters as exemplars of kingship, knighthood, and womanhood, the book traces the medieval author{u2019}s exploration of the values constituting chivalry as embodied in individual characters, a process that enabled him to formulate a vision of those values for his own troubled period of the Wars of the Roses. This book further explores the contribution Malory{u2019}s art of characterization makes to the literary and aesthetic power of the Morte Darthur. Each chapter{u2019}s focus on individual characters makes the book not only an integrated thematic overview, but also a useful reference for focused study of particular Arthurian figures. As such, the book is designed to meet the interests and needs of both professional scholars and students of Arthurian and medieval literature. --Provided by publisher
