In a world surrounded by chaos, Arthur emerges and forms the Round Table with the help of a sorcerer named Merlin. Arthur and his knights embark on numerous adventures, including the famous quest for the Holy Grail. During the reign of Arthur, the Kingdom of Camelot becomes the pinnacle of civilization and honor. However, like all great civilizations, Camelot is put to the test when evil forces arise and threaten the Round Table. 

French for "The Death of Arthur," Le Morte d'Arthur is known as one of the most definitive collections of Arthurian tales. These various Arthurian tales were originally passed down by oral tradition, but were eventually compiled and written down by Sir Thomas Malory in one work known as Le Morte d'Arthur. This work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton. Le Morte d'Arthur remains a pivotal work in British literature even today. 

This abridged version omits books five, seven, eight, nine and ten, which are mostly concerned with the story of Tristram and Isolde. This abridged version will also occasionally omit some chapters of a book or some lines to keep the book a more manageable length.
