  • Arthur's Knights
    865 words
    Excalibur 'Guards, Knights, Squires; prepare for battle!' hollers one of the kings noble knights. The rumbling thunder of horses trotting across the wooden mote bridge echoes throughout the castle. Brave knights gallop their horses into the foggy mist where swords and shields smash, the sounds of their armor and their striking metals echo across the land they battle over. Blood oozes from severed bodies as limbs are sliced off men like cheese. These barbaric and berserk behaviors were the everyd...
  • Similarities Arthur And Lancelot
    3,231 words
    Arthurian Legend is a group of stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The legends originated as a collection of folk tales passed down by oral tradition. As the stories spread through Europe different scenes as well as different versions appear in different countries. Consequently some of the stories have minor contradictions with each other. However, even though the story has been modified on several occasions, the same basic stories of adventure, romance, combat, betrayal, ...
  • Monty Python And The Holy Grail
    1,299 words
    "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is a satiric comedy about the quest of King Arthur. The movie starts out with Arthur, King of the Britons, looking for knights to sit with him at Camelot. He finds many knights including Sir Galahad the pure, Sir Lancelot the brave, the quiet Sir Bedevere, and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot. Through satire and parody of certain events in history (witch trials, the black plague) they find Camelot, but after literally a quick song and dance they ...
  • Arthur's Best Knight Sir Lancelot
    502 words
    Sir Lancelot du Lake was quite possibly the bravest and most gallant knight in the world. His battles were pretty much lopsided, due to his extreme skill. He was King Arthur's best knight. He was very adventurous and prone to getting into trouble, which he always came out of without a scratch. Why was Lancelot honored so In the last four paragraphs, I will try to explain this to my best ability. Why did I say he was Arthur's best knight Sir Lancelot was sworn to protect Guenevere, King Arthur's ...
  • Gwen's Old Age
    933 words
    The Once and Future King Description of Guenever Guenever is one whose personality and appearance fluctuates often during the course of her life. The facts that she fell in love with someone other than her husband and that she never bore a child contributes greatly to these abrupt and drastic changes. The description of Guenever as a young wife is one with deep, clear blue eyes, which almost beheld a sort of fearlessness which was startling, as was her black hair. Although Gwen was quite fond of...
  • Lancelot Grants Elaine
    916 words
    The Woman in Arthurian Legend Sir Thomas Malory spent his twilight years weaving tangled webs of adventure, love, lust, and deceit. These stories hold their origins in the kingdom of Camelot, where the masculine figure of the Knight of the Round Table dominates. At the helm of this fraternity was King Arthur, as vassal of God. Galahad, Gah eris, Gareth, Lancelot, and Sir Bors are only a sampling of the great men that graced the seats around the great table. However, it would be careless to disre...
  • Arthur Heralds And Malory Champions
    4,684 words
    The Politics of Violence in Malory's Treatment of the Arthurian Legend By focusing, ostensibly, on sex and violence, Malory's rendering of the Arthurian legend becomes something quite distinct from the French originals. Roger Ascham's complaint that only "bold baudrie and open manslaughter", may be found in the Works, seems to be well grounded, but such a reading tends to neglect the author's most essential themes. Why is violence such a fundamental aspect of these tales Malory's interest in the...

  • Arthur About Lancelot's And Guinevere's Relationship
    541 words
    The uglier the truth the truer the friend is a statement that has been echoed throughout the history of time. In "Camelot", King Arthur experienced this quotation first hand. Even though "Camelot" is a fictional movie, the same situation that befell King Arthur really occurs in real life to everyday people. Just by looking at Pellinore, you would not think that he was a trustworthy man. Dirty, hair uncombed, dingy clothes are all words that could be used to describe Pellinore's appearance. But a...
  • Sir Mordred And King Arthur
    852 words
    An act of chivalry is described as the qualifications or character of the ideal knight. Knights were expected to uphold this code of conduct.

Though the code of chivalry contains many qualities or acts, nevertheless bravery, loyalty, and courtly love are demonstrated more throughout this literature. Bravery is the mental or moral stre...
