First published in the 1400s, Le Morte d'Arthur tells the story of King Arthur and his knights. Written in Middle English, it compiles a number of French stories and gives them an English identity. Stories include the quest for the Holy Grail, the tragic love story of Tristan and Isolde, and Arthur's death at the hands of Mordred, his son. The idea of courtly love is explored throughout the book, in the story of Tristan and Isolde, and in the affair between Sir Launcelot and Queen Guinevere.
