Le Morte D’Arthur by Thomas Malory
The book is the author’s most famous work and it tells the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Thomas Malory was an English Romancist and published the book in 1485, 15 years after he finished writing it. The work was originally divided into eight tales which comprise the adventures of King Arthur since his birth until death. Most of the stories take place in France and Britain in the second half of the 5th century, a period of expansion of the Roman Empire in Europe.
