Publisher's Summary

The Age of Chivalry, Thomas Bulfinch's masterpiece of history and fable, recounts the tales of Arthur and the Round Table. A timeless tale retold by Milton, Dryden, Tennyson, and other writers before and since, the Arthurian legend has metamorphosed from medieval Welsh texts to the French vernacular romances of Chrétien de Troyes; from obscure histories of a British chieftain of the fifth or sixth century, to a chronicle of the advent of Christendom in the British Isles. This book not only tells the tales of King Arthur but also explains the historical events and the mindset of the people during the period of their creation.

interesting text- narration a bit iffy

fascinating history of place names and intertwining of legends and mythology. narration rather expressionless and hard, french names and places are pronounced nicely, but the welsh ones so badly they're unrecognisable on first listen.
