In a masterful blend of history, geography, and literature, Jean Markale re-creates the true King Arthur, the real-life Celtic warrior-hero who organized the resistance to the Saxon onslaught in fifth-century England. Markale's unsurpassed knowledge of Celtic history has enabled him to reconstruct for us the actual world in which King Arthur lived--its heros, its values, and its vicissitudes--and to define the position that Arthur occupied within it.

- Explains how the Arthurian ideals of knightly virtue and chivalry are at the heart of Western literature and thought

- Shows how the Celtic heritage continues to exert a unique formative power on our personal and moral concepts
