Riassunto: A rather ambitious title you might think, but this is one of the best books on King Arthur written for a general readership. This revised edition sees Ashe stand by his claim that the real Arthur was to be found amidst literary creation based on historical fact. He provides a useful synopsis of Geoffrey of Monmouth's 12th-century History of the Kings of Britain as it relates to the Arthur myth, and delves deeply into the world of post-Roman Britain searching for clues and links to the king mentioned therein. Stepping from literary imagination to real history, and presenting fresh interpretations of material, this is a great book and one which takes the Arthur legend seriously.
Sinossi: Arthurian expert Geoffrey Ashe presents an investigation into the legend of King Arthur that broke the deadlock that earlier research had reached and gave Arthur a firmer status in history.
