The life and times of Sir Thomas Malory by P. J. C Field( )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All the threads that make the stuff of the Arthurian legends - chivalry and betrayal, high romance and magic - come together with unequalled power in Malory's vibrant re-telling of the Arthurian stories. His Morte Darthur has been widely read for centuries, but the author's own life has been as variously reported as that of any Arthurian knight. Who was he? Peter Field's identification of the real Sir Thomas Malory is a fascinating detective story, drawing clues from a thorough exploration of contemporary records of military campaigns, local skirmishes, and political factions. The first serious attempts to identify Malory were made in the 1890s, but the Malory who seemed most likely was found to have been accused of attempted murder, rape, extortion, sacrilegious robbery - and, although he seems never to have been brought to trial, to have spent ten years or more in prison. Could this be reconciled with the authorship of the most famous chivalric romance in English? Opinions differed; other possible authors, other Malorys, were proposed. It is only with this book, which gives the fullest consideration yet undertaken to the competing arguments (drawing on documents many of which were unknown in 1966 when the last book on Malory's life appeared) that the identity of Sir Thomas Malory is at last established beyond serious question

Arthurian studies in honour of P.J.C. Field by Bonnie Wheeler( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Field, Professor of English at the University of Wales, Bangor, is a distinguished Arthurian scholar (and vice-president of the International Arthurian Society) whose work has focused particularly on Malory's 'Morte Darthur'. This special interest is reflected by the contributors to this volume, but a wide variety of other Arthurian and associated material is also covered in the twenty-seven studies. The chapters range over the whole field of Arthurian vernacular texts and include new studies of early French and German texts as well as an analysis of the impact of Arthurian materials on Galician-Portuguese poetry. Many provide new insights into Malory's text and sources, and these culminate in reflections on Malory's impact on one later American reader, Mark Twain. Collectively the chapters on Malory substantiate a the claim that Malory is a keen and critical reader of his source texts, and that he is a powerful stylist.
