    1. Note this book inspires brave deeds and noble speech.I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed this book It was written in the 1800 s, yet the feel and pace of this book was so modernly refreshing I finished it in less than a week It s not as complicated as Shakespeare to read, and I found myself gasping aloud when something happened that I had not expected there are countless plot twists Each chapter had me engrossed and And, I feel compelled to say that the Catholicism found throughout this m [...]


    2. Extremely detailed, readable, filled with an enchanting, and chivalry version of the story of King Arthur and His Knights Howard Pyle tells the story starting from the beginning through almost all the notable Knights You can feel his love for the legends as they come through the pages The morals are detailed at the end of most of the major books, like making a symbolism of Excalibur and the sheath of truth and faith The Knights of the Round Table had to prove they were high minded, honorable, a [...]



    3. I Finished It only took almost a year but a finished.I ve attempted to read Pyle before , but his Robin Hood was rather dry and I moved on to other things AKA I ll have to catch up on Robin Hood later.Pyle really seems to get into his element with Arthur and it shows Nearly everything is fun Pyle pops in with notes here and there explaining moral and his prayers for the reader, with makes me want so badly to learn about him Interestingly I noticed Pyle has a thing for raven haired, black eyed wo [...]


    4. Due to Howard Pyle being reproduced by multiple people, there might be some confusion This is called The Story of King Arthur and His Knights It s divided into 6 sections.Arthur and GuinevereLancelotTristam and Iseult Elaine the FairSir GalahadThe Passing of ArthurEach of these sections carries sub sections chapters This version is certainly the most comprehensive for kids without or less with Arthur Guinevere Lancelot triangle and on the great adventures of the Knights of the Round Table This [...]


    5. The book King Arthur and his Knights by Howard Pyle is a very fast read book The Diction used in the book is not complex at all and the story is fairly easy to follow If one looses track of the plot at one part in the book they can pick it back up again very quickly because of the format This book is written to were there is a set of short stories, however there is still an overall plot I would rate this book four out of five stars because of the format Each of these short stories are mostly abo [...]


    6. Whew I finally finished this book I ve been trudging through for over 4 months I HATED reading this book I thought that it was boring and the language was hard to understand I gave it 3 stars because, although I didn t like reading it, I like having read it The legend of King Arthur is such a big part of our literary heritage, and I m glad to learn a little about the character of Arthur Each chapter is or less a story on its own The beginning of each chapter started out so boring Some night wo [...]



    7. This is a classic epic that generation upon generation has been introduced to in one way or another This book by Howard Pyle is the most complete glimpse into the world of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table It is a bit dated in Pyle s writing style, despite the fact that it was written in the 20th century, however, I suspect, it is a well executed attempt at writing in the style of Middle English The stories are compelling The characters are fresh yet familiar Something I recommend f [...]



    8. What I liked most about Pyle s Arthur stories was that despite being a young persons or children s book, it doesn t ever read like he s writing down to children the stories have morals too, like children s books but they are only the tiniest bit preachy not too much like some others I enjoyed reading these but couldn t help thinking about how even entertainment or a search for adventure involved things like jousting in which someone invariably got hurt and quite badly, at times.


    9. What can I say about this book First of all, I m a non native speaker so, in the beginning, I found the book difficult to read because of the old English words thee, art, thou, hath etc But I got some help with some of those words and the other ones you can simply figure it out in the context After some time I was reading a modern English book.Second, I really enjoy reading it and was involved with the stories of King Arthur, Merlin, Sir Pellias and Sir Gwaine The story, at the beginning, was al [...]


    10. I was curious and it was available was fine They didn t have much regard for women and as for the knights, they were kind of a twisted type of chivalryl mixed up with pride and a quick temper.


    11. Phew That was a long read aloud with the kids I think next time I will stick to something digestible and focused on King Arthur himself But, that said, I am glad to have read it.


    12. I absolutely loved this book Being in 7th grade when I read it, the old language they used were at times a bit confusing and made me have to reread some parts, but overall I understood it I d heard very few things of King Arthur before I read it, but regardless it was easy to jump into The author switching to second person occasionally made me feel like I was back in kindergarten listening to my teacher tell me a story, which was very relaxing and made me want to continue It wasn t a chore to re [...]


    13. Every once in a great while, we are reminded of a part of ourselves that has grown faint or blurred by time Reading Howard Pyle s stories of the Arthurian legend brought into clear focus what must have been at least a partial contribution to my childhood desires to right wrongs, and to protect those who could not protect themselves But beyond physical action, there is a kind of true devotion and honor to these knights sorely lacking in many modern heroes In fact, if they were to be pitted agains [...]


    14. Howard Pyle captured me with the tales of Robin Hood, so I bought up all of the tales of Arthur and his knights several books This is my first foray into these tales, and it was a treat for me to finally acquaint myself with the famous knights and their deeds.I loved reading of heroic adventures and men with a strong sense of honor Also, for someone who usually roots for a happy ending, it s fun although not very suspenseful to read along and know that the heroes will always eventually succeed A [...]


    15. The book, The story of King Arthur and his Knights by Howard Pyle is written filled with violence, romance, conspiracy, and death It uses a lot of vivid details, like a movie projected into your head while reading Any reader will feel awed and sorrowed for the characters who were mainly impacted by the conflict The story is third person narrated, and each chapter, the narrator changes from character to share their opinions of what s going on As long as a reader have a sense for time appreciated [...]


    16. Com certeza voc j ouviu sobre esta famosa hist ria, ou ao menos sobre alguns de seus personagens famosos, como a espada Excalibur, Mago Merlin e a bruxa Morgana Um cl ssico que se passa durante a Idade M dia, a obra de Pyle alvo de dezenas de adapta es para o cinema e televis o e serve de inspira o para diversos livros.O rei Uther Pedragon gostaria muito de celebrar o nascimento de seu herdeiro, mas por orienta o de Merlin, ele esconde este fato, pois sua morte pr xima e seus inimigos viriam atr [...]


    17. It was a fun read aloud with the old fashioned words and syntax, and fun to share classic legends with my kids We all had fun trying to speak like the knights I was a bit surprised that Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad did not enter the story, but apparently they are covered in other volumes My sons 11 and 4 years old really enjoyed this book, but my daughter 8 years old hated it I don t think the one dimensional female characters turned her off, but simply that she had no interest in jousting The k [...]


    18. The Story of King Arthur and his Knights is the first in the series including, The Story of the Champions of the Round Table, The Story of Lancelot and his Companions and, finally, The Story of the Grail and the Passing of Arthur it comprises the entire Arthurian legend i read all of these books when i was around 10, and i recommend them, as they say, to children of all ages his language certainly SOUNDS authentic the narrative is detailed and gripping and the illustrations, Pyle s own, beautifu [...]


    19. I couldn t get past the language If you enjoy over the top Old English writing styles to remind you that you are reading a medieval story of King Arthur his knights, then this is your book I personally feel the Old English was too much could have been played down in such a way to make the reading fluid without giving way entirely to the medieval writing style, but that s just me I love Arthurian lore, wish I had the patience to sift through all the junk to get to the actual stories trying to be [...]


    20. This was a well written book, besides all the language used that people now days don t use The legend is really interesting It talks about the life of Arthur Pendragon and how he became king at such a young age, and how he created his court of knights It also talks about the adventures that King Arthur had, and the adventures that some of his knights had The book is very detailed and the writing is very powerful The Author even said he was going to make another book about it at the end I really [...]


    21. The kids and I just finished reading these tales together It was much enjoyable than the Sir Thomas Mallory version Hank was disappointed that Sir Lancelot doesn t make it into these stories, so we ll have to continue on with the next book in the series.




    22. So may God grant us to come together at another time with such happiness and prosperity that you may have a free and untroubled heart to enjoy the narrated history of those excellent men which I shall then set before you Amen After I ve read these sentences, I felt like a child whose grandpa had just finished the story telling session beside the fireplace This was a light and wonderful collection of stories bedight with sorcery and swordplay The pacing of the stories are quick enough not to bore [...]


    23. I liked the reading experience the diction was my favorite part about reading this book, it made me want to speak old English and eat at Medieval Times, or maybe I ll settle for a King Arthur s Supreme Pizza from Round Table It s fun although this book needed my undivided attention, otherwise it s a bit of a challenge to keep up with the language It s a great beginning to the Arthurian legend I liked the way the sections and stories are broken down and related to each other The format of this Ba [...]


    24. Of all the noble knights of old, only one knight has wielded the exalted blade Excalibur and created the legend of the round table In these tales of fantasy and chivalry, Howard Pyle revives one of the greatest legends in The Story of King Arthur and His Knights These tales include much attention to detail and description to put the reader in the story Pyle does this greatly when describing the Round Table In the midst of the pavilion was a Round Table at each of the 50 places was a chalice of g [...]


    25. As of this writing, I have not read some of the other traditional KING Arthur stories Le Morte d Arthur by Malory, the one by Roger Lancelyn Green, etc however I quite enjoyed it It is a traditional Arthurian story no Saxons, etc here that is all flowery style thou, hast, etc that goes into the adventures of King Arthur and how he became King , Merlin, and some of his Knights You can definitely tell that both Tolkien and Martin must have read and enjoyed this book, as there different types of e [...]
