I went through my Arthur phase many, many years ago. I read the Arthur retellings by modern writers and I fell in love with Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights. I wonder how much more he could written if he hadn't passed away? I truly mourned the fact that there wasn't more from Steinbeck.
In the grip of Arthuritis, I seriously considered naming my first child Sir Gareth of Orkney. Sir Gareth was my favorite knight.
Merrily Gareth asked,Fortunately for my son, I was beyond my Arthur stage by time he was born!
"Have I not earned my cake in baking of it?
Let be my name until I make my name!
My deeds will speak: it is but for a day."
If you'd like to revisit the world of Arthur, or discover it for the first time, check out King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table. It's a quick tour of all things Arthur. A less visually appealing site, but a bit more in-depth is The Camelot Project at the University of Rochester.
