“We know very little about the real Arthur. The scraps of history about him date from centuries after his death; it is as if all that we knew about the historical Elizabeth I was two sentences written down at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and the rest was either hearsay or the work of today’ novelists. The image we now have of Arthur as a great medieval king, leader of a splendid company of chivalrous knights in shining armor, is pure fantasy, imagined by poets of the Middle Ages, who wanted to create a king of ideal court. The Round Table and the Holy Grail are dream-symbols, born out of the longing for justice and grace in an imperfect, brutal world.”author
