King Arthur

Don Quixote, the beloved itinerant knight.

T. Bulfinch's "A New Translation of King Arthur's Tales" Synopsis and Commentary - The Royal Tale of the English Medieval Knight! And the connection to Don Quixote.

This book will be a work compiled as a guidebook to get a general overview of the vast "Tales of King Arthur".

I would highly recommend this piece. The story is dramatic and enjoyable. I am convinced that this story has had a great influence on modern fantasy and video game productions. The Holy Sword Excalibur and the legend of the Holy Grail are exciting even for those of us living in the modern age. I think this work can be called the royal road of storytelling.

It was also interesting to read it while thinking about the connection to "Don Quixote"!

M. J. Dougherty, "Illustrated King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table" - A recommended guide to learn the outline and history of the Arthurian story!

When it comes to medieval knightly tales, "The Tales of King Arthur" cannot be missed.

You have probably heard of "The Tales of King Arthur" before, even if you don't know what it is about.

And in fact, the famous "Knights of the Round Table", "Legend of the Holy Grail" and "Holy Sword Excalibur" are mentioned in this story. This is interesting.

It is also visually friendly with numerous illustrations, making it easy to read.

This is a great book for an introduction to King Arthur. This was a much appreciated work.

I highly recommend this guidebook.

この本は『ドン・キホーテ』に描かれる騎士の世界が実際にどのようなものだったかということを解説してくれる作品になります。

この本を読めば騎士の始まりやドン・キホーテが奉じる騎士道とは何かということもかなり詳しく知ることができます。

特に十字軍と騎士道のつながりは非常に興味深いものがありました。

Shunichi Ikegami's "Illustrated World of Knights" Overview and Comments - A Guidebook for Understanding the History of Knights in the Middle Ages, when Don Quixote went mad.

「騎士道」という言葉は知っていてもその実態がどのようなものだったかは意外とわからないですよね。

『ドン・キホーテ』はそれ単体でも最高に面白い作品ですが、中世の騎士たちの姿を知ることでより楽しむことができるのではないでしょうか。

図版やイラストも多数掲載されているので視覚的にも非常にわかりやすい作品です。解説の文章も読みやすく、入門書として非常に優れたガイドブックとなっています。

I would highly recommend this work.
