The Alliterative Morte Arthure

Lecture no. 14 from the course: King Arthur: History and Legend

The Alliterative Morte Arthure

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

In this dramatic culmination of the saga, study the events of Arthur’s military victory over Rome, and his ensuing degeneration from noble king to ruthless conqueror. Reflect on the poignant final meeting of Mordred and Gawain, the story’s bleak denouement, and the poet’s implicit message regarding Arthur’s character and the nature of war.
