Summary
The legends of King Arthur live in the last great battle between magic and reality. All the elements of Sir Thomas Malory's classic "Le Morte Darthur" are here: Arthur the boy king, removing the magical sword Excalibur from the stone and setting out to unite the land; the valorous Knights of the Round Table, sworn to the chivalric ideals of truth, courage and purity of heart, but decaying into drunkenness and squabbling; the gallant attempt to restore honor by seeking out the Holy Grail, the cup used by Christ during the Last Supper; and the wizard Merlin and temptress Morgana, medieval alchemists who use their powers to affect the course of human events...but are powerless to prevent the old pagan gods of wood and stream from giving way to the new gods of logic and science
