Something's missing!

by advancedinstructor on Apr 23, 2009

I go back 65 years for a vivid recollection of what was my FAVORITE book as a youth. Howard Pyle's translation of the Arthur legend is one of the best, but this book very disappointingly omits stories about too many of the knights that formed the backbone of the complete version, including the tales of Sir Tristram (the only knight Sir Lancelot could never vanquish), Sir Beaumains "of the Kitchen" whom Sir Kay had befriended, brothers Sir Gareth and Sir Gaheris, and the story of Sir Galahad, etc. (I could go on, but why bother?). Many of them can be found in "King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table", as edited by Sidney Lanier, whose rendition is just as enjoyable and a more satisfying read.
