The Life of Sir Aglovale de Galis continues, as a single line of Malory is retconned into a brilliant and evocative Arthurian episode.
This chapter is fresh out of the oven.
The Life of Sir Aglovale de Galis continues, with a chapter full of secrets and intrigue, love and hate, and all the Arthurian mood you could ask for.
One thing I like very much about this chapter is that, though the author clearly is interested in the psychological ideas of her day, she doesn’t beat you over the head with this. Rather, she finds reasonable ways to express her ideas in the language (and cast of mind) of a courtly tale of knights and ladies, and hermits and bandits. A lot of historical and fantasy writers could learn from her.
You don’t have to be a Malory geek to enjoy The Life of Sir Aglovale de Galis.
But it helps. So at the back of the book, Housman provided quotes from Malory, so that people could reassure themselves that it all was really in there. I’m providing them, too. Ignore them or listen to them, whatever you prefer.
