I can tell from my kid's reading enthusiasm that this is a great collection of classics.

I can tell from my kid's reading enthusiasm that this is a great collection of classics. But best of all, I think it's a great idea to print the books in small dimensions (15 cm) -- kids simply can not hold the regular books as conveniently as adults! I tried those . " x 11" weight-lifting versions of the same-title classics, my kid never read them for more than five minutes. One person found this helpful.

Goodrich uses excellent practical pursuits of getting her historical evidence. Knowing Old French and having many strings of critical foreign words that relate to her research was hard on some of the brain-dead critics. Old French was spoken by Arthur. Norma died at 89 and spent her whole life studying this material. Because she was not officially from a Historian Background(professor of comparative Literature) does not mean her material is suspect. It means Historians should be more respectful of her work until they know what is going on themselves. Professional Arrogance gets in the way of their quick bias reviews. Most of these stupid thoughts by young people who have never really read the book or had the capacity to understand her thinking should be using reverence of how to polish her shoes. This books abounds in interesting information from a time frame so far back that is tricky to get a picture of the Situation. Goodrich is very careful of how she decides to accept some premise and reject others. Edward J Stack

Another great story of the mythical and legend of King Arthur and the knights of the round table

I found it well-researched and extremely well written. Ms. Goodrich's arguments differ considerably from orthodox, academic views, which perhaps explains the marked and mean-spirited hostility which has greeted this book in some quarters. That hostility is very much in contrast to Ms. Goodrich's tone, which I found quite polite and low key. At any rate her argument that Arthur wasn't really medieval, but was instead the 'last of the Romans' is reasonable and very well argued. If it turns out in the long run that she is incorrect, then she will have at least introduced an extraordinarily interesting theory to the current mix. If on the other hand it turns out that she is right, then her sharp critics will have some nasty words to swallow. Perhaps these defenders of orthodoxy are feeling threatened?

Goodrich provides evidence that King Arthur had life beyond the myth, based on Medieval documents, her knowledge of Middle-Ages languages, and present-day Ordinance maps. In conjunction with her works on Merlin, Guenievere, and The Holy Grail she documents his life and times and is most persuasive. She cites research by Marie of France, Eleanore of Aquitane's daughter, and the story that one written account was lost by Richard the Lionheart in a card game.

This dense-with-information study takes dilligence -- I'm a college graduate with an English minor and it's the hardest book I ever read. But well worth it.

I was reading Michael Bradley and he mentioned this book. Although Michael didn't agree with this thesis regarding Arthur I find the research sublime and the assertions thought provoking. Serious thought must weigh in when this presentation is read.

I purchased the book for a friend. I already owned one. We were discussing what we were reading presently (my second time through the book), and I found out of his interest in King Arthur. I received the book in a timely manner; it was in great shape.

I love the books that Norma Goodrich writes. There is research in her books as well as story. You will enjoy all of them if you are a mid-evil period reader. Merlin and Guinevere are two more of her books.
A most entertaining book, something of which I had been wondering about. I am so glad this person elected to do the research. And too, I wonder if she is related if Goodrich is her maiden name and if not, I wonder if her husband is related to me I am a descendent of Ensign William Goodrich.
