Bulwer-Lytton’s King Arthur

King Arthur

Another great poetry must read includes Bulwer-Lytton‘s King Arthur cycle.

In this terrific narrative, Bulwer-Lytton traces the inauguration of King Arthur’s kingdom in Camelot up to the betrothal of Arthur with Genevieve. This cycle describes events not covered by the traditional Arthurian epics: Arthur’s mysterious quest to Brittany, Gawain’s adventures amongst the Northmen, Camelot’s withstanding invasions of vast Saxon hoards…

  • What fabulous dangers await King Arthur in Brittany’s mysterious Happy Valley? And why does this secret vale conceal itself from all outsiders?
  • What secret power directs the actions of the Saxon invaders? And why is it so inimical to the continued existence of Camelot?
