"I admire both the introduction and the selections."--David Wallace, University of Minnesota
"Excellent intro - the illustrations are a nice touch as well. An update of the bibliographical essay (it goes only as late as 1971) is my only suggestion for improvement. I will definately use it again next spring for my intro. to medieval English literature class."--Robert W. Barrett, Jr., University of Pennsylvania
"Invaluable selection from the greatest English Arthurian work, and indispensable foundation for the study of the contemporary legend."--Professor Thomas A. Shippey, St. Louis University
"I've used this book for years."--Deborah J. Hyland, St. Louis University
"The best student edition of Malory available. It cleaves Keith Baines's limp translation from the brain pan to the saddle bow."--Lan Lipscomb, Troy State University, A
