Although many versions exist of the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Le Morte d'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory endures as the most moving and richly inventive. In this abridged retelling, the inimitable Peter Ackroyd transforms Malory's fifteenth-century work into a dramatic modern story, vividly bringing to life a world of courage and chivalry, magic, and majesty. John Steinbeck writes a similarly enthralling retelling of Malory’s beloved Arthurian stories in his rendition, The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights.
