This book examines sixteen key figures in the Morte Darthur providing insight into each as an exemplar of chivalric values presented by the author to his own troubled times. The focus of each chapter on individual characters makes the book not only an integrated thematic overview, but also a useful reference for the focused study of particular Arthurian rulers, knights, and ladies.
