Idylls of the King
by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2004
Tennyson interprets the Arthurian myth as an epic poem, and his tales of Camelot soar to remarkable imaginative heights to trace the birth of a king; the founding, fellowship, and decline of the Round Table; and the king's inevitable departure. Encompassing romance, heroism, duty, and conflict, Tennyson's poetry charts the rise and fall of a legendary society.

The book is for the connoisseur of fine poetry. It has Sir Walter Scott's epic sweep, Arthur Schopenhauer's Wille zum Leben, and Shelley's fluidity of movement, among other qualities, all distilled with Dennis Thomas' characteristic aplomb.
