Librivox – Malory – Le Mort D’Arthur

Librivox Banner

I’ve worked with other Librivox volunteers to produce a free audiobook version of Le Mort D’Arthur by Thomas Malory.

Le Morte d’Arthur is a compilation of a number of well-known French and English Arthurian romances. Originally, Malory divided his work principally into eight parts:

  1. The birth and rise of Arthur: “From the Marriage of King Uther unto King Arthur that Reigned After Him and Did Many Battles”
  2. King Arthur‘s war against the Romans:”The Noble Tale Between King Arthur and Lucius the Emperor of Rome”
  3. The book of Lancelot: “The Noble Tale of Sir Launcelot Du Lac”
  4. The book of Gareth (brother of Gawain): “The Tale of Sir Gareth of Orkney”
  5. Tristan and Isolde: “The First and the Second Book of Sir Tristrams de Lione”
  6. The Quest for the Holy Grail: “The Noble Tale of the Sangreal”
  7. The affair between Lancelot and Guinevere: “Sir Launcelot and Queen Gwenyvere”
  8. The breaking of the Knights of the Round Table and the death of Arthur: “The Death of Arthur”

Most of the events in the book take place in Britain and France in the latter half of the 5th century: although some of Arthur’s knights venture farther afield, to Rome and Sarras (near Babylon).
