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

24 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and held by 1,701 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

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

9 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and held by 994 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.

An Arthurian dictionary by Charles Moorman( Book )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 700 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.
