No one should have to slog through that pile of continuity errors and insipid descriptions of jousts. I’ve spent years of my life poring over all twenty-one Books of this foundational work of fantasy literature, dreadful as it is. Here, for your amusement and edification, I recount, dissect, and ruthlessly mock each ridiculous plot contrivance, each self-contradictory anecdote, and each unnamed damsel who runs in from offscreen and dies.Arthur Dies at the End volume 5: Guinevere, Best Nun Ever covers he grand finale of Le Morte d’Arthur, Books XVIII through XXI. Marvel as Sir Gawaine pulls a face turn/! Be astonished as King Arthur spends chapters and chapters sobbing! Sympathize as Sir Lancelot regretfully starts a civil war! Mordred, Arthur, and Lancelot are all locked in a fight for control of Guinevere (and the country)- I’m not telling you how it ends but maybe if you’ve been paying attention you can make a few guesses!ARTHUR DIES AT THE END: I read Le Morte d’Arthur so you don’t have to!
