Le Morte d'Arthur, Vol. 1 - Thomas Malory, Janet Cowen, John Lawlor
Though I consider myself generally open to non-modern literature, I found this awfully hard to read. The descriptions of tourneys and combats are maddeningly repetitive, and attention is paid to matters of accoutrement, wealth, and genealogy that, I think, can't possibly appeal to those outside that social milieu. Not that there isn't some interest, some developments. However, I only have the first volume, which ends just when the story of Tristam is threatening to become interesting.
