Kings & captains; variations on a heroic theme by Charles Moorman( Book )

10 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Moorman reexamines several major works of the western heroic tradition: The Iliad, The Odyssey, Beowulf, The Song of Roland, The Nibelungenlied, the Norse sagas, and the Arthurian cycle. Disregarding the usual limited definitions which have controlled the study of heroic literature, he draws together these disparate works by proposing a theme common to them all: the opposition of two major figures whom he names king and captain. The figure of the king arises from the community with its need for responsible government, while the captain, derived from myth, is a highly individualistic, i
The works of the Gawain-poet by British Library( Book )

12 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together four works of the unknown fourteenth-century poet famous for the Arthurian romance Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, in their original Middle English. In one of the great tales of medieval literature, Gawain, the noblest knight of King Arthur's court, must keep a deadly bargain with a monstrous knight and resist the advances of his host's beautiful wife. The dream vision of Pearl depicts a bereaved father whose lost child leads him to glimpse heaven. And in moral poems based on stories from the Bible, Cleanness warns against sins of the flesh and of desecration, while Patience encourages readers to endure suffering as God's will"--Back cover

The book of Kyng Arthur; the unity of Malory's Morte Darthur by Charles Moorman( Book )

23 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with a consideration of Malory's ingenious chronology, this study shows that Malory achieved thematic and structural unity by selecting from the great mass of Arthurian legend three narrative strands -- the intrigues of Lancelot and Guinevere, the Grail quest, and the feud between the houses of Lot and Pellinore -- using these to illustrate a single theme -- the rise, flowering, and downfall of an ideal civilization. This selection and use of diverse materials, Charles Moorman asserts, indicates clearly that Malory set to work with a preconceived plan and that he did achieve his purpose
An Arthurian dictionary by Charles Moorman( Book )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended as a reference manual for students, this dictionary lists the characters, places, and topics connected with the legend of King Arthur from its first written appearances through Sir Thomas Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur." The entries are generally limited to Celtic, French, German, and English materials and include characters and places that appear in more than one work or are important to the legend. However, the dictionary does provide a key to some of the less eminent figures and locations in the Arthurian legends. The introduction offers a sketch of the development of the Arthur story, and the bibliography lists the general commentaries, all of which are standard authorities, that served as the major sources for this volume.
