Download or read book The Death of King Arthur written by and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 1975-01-30 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Recounting the final days of Arthur, this thirteenth-century French version of the Camelot legend, written by an unknown author, is set in a world of fading chivalric glory. It depicts the Round Table diminished in strength after the Quest for the Holy Grail, and with its integrity threatened by the weakness of Arthur's own knights. Whispers of Queen Guinevere's infidelity with his beloved comrade-at-arms Sir Lancelot profoundly distress the trusting King, leaving him no match for the machinations of the treacherous Sir Mordred. The human tragedy of The Death of King Arthur so impressed Malory that he built his own Arthurian legend on this view of the court - a view that profoundly influenced the English conception of the 'great' King.

Download or read book The Death of the Red King written by Paul Doherty and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-06-11 with total page 152 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1100, King William II died in a tragic accident... or was it murder? In The Death of the Red King, acclaimed historian Paul Doherty investigates the suspicious death of William II in a masterful 'faction' - a mix of both fact and fiction. Concentrating on both old and new evidence, Paul Doherty explores the highly suspicious elements surrounding the death of King William II of England, nicknamed "Rufus the Red King". Through the eyes of the great philosopher Anselm, a secret admirer of the Red King, a far more chilling interpretation of his death is put forward that challenges everything we think we know. What readers are saying about Paul Doherty: 'An interesting look at a little known real-life mystery' 'The book is interesting, well written, fact and fiction coming easily together to form a well-argued case' 'Doherty proves that he is a scholar as well as a writer of novels'
Download or read book The Death of a King written by Paul Doherty and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-06-06 with total page 153 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The fate of a king is not always glorious... The dramatic events of Edward II's death are told with masterful skill by acclaimed writer, Paul Doherty, in The Death of a King. Perfect for fans of Michael Jecks and Ellis Peters. England's Edward II so angered his wife, her lover, and his subjects that they revolted, deposed him, and made him prisoner. History records that Edward II was eventually murdered in Berkeley Castle and buried publicly in Gloucester cathedral. But was he? The heir, Edward III, charges Chancery Clerk Edmund Beche with uncovering the truth of the matter. Beche's investigation is torturous, blocked by hidden records, outright lies, unexpected confessions, double crosses, and a high body count. Grave digging, burglary, and soldiering at the bloody battle of Crécy await him. But Edward is a most determined man... What readers are saying about Paul Doherty: 'Doherty writes well and paints a very believable picture' 'Mr. Doherty's research is only topped by his imagination' 'The intrigue! The intrigue! What can I say? Read it... NOW!'

Download or read book Shakespeare's Restless World written by Neil MacGregor and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 2012-10-04 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From Neil MacGregor, the acclaimed creator of A History of the World in 100 Objects and the Director of the British Museum, comes a unique, enthralling exploration of the age of William Shakespeare to accompany a new BBC Radio 4 series. Shakespeare lived through a pivotal period in human history. With the discovery of the New World, the horizons of Old Europe were expanding dramatically - and long-cherished certainties were crumbling. Life was exhilaratingly uncertain. What were Londoners thinking when they went to see Shakespeare's plays? What was it like living in their world? Here Neil MacGregor looks at twenty objects from Shakespeare's life and times, and uncovers the fascinating stories behind them. The objects themselves range from the grand (such as the hoard of gold coins that make up the Salcombe treasure) to the very humble, like the battered trunk and worn garments of an unknown pedlar. But in each case, they allow MacGregor to explore issues as diverse as piracy and Islam, Catholicism and disguise. MacGregor weaves the histories of objects into the words of Shakespeare's plays themselves to suggest to us where his ideas about religion, national identity, the history of England and the world, human nature itself, may have come from. The result is a fresh and thrilling evocation of Shakespeare's world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is 1855. The English revolt has failed, and brutal General Vadula governs England now. Only a few small bands of English rebels still hold out against the Rajthanan empire. Jack Casey survives in remote Shropshire, training young rebels to use the conqueror's magic. But he is gravely ill, with only two months to live . . . Then refugees bring with them news of a rogue Indian sorcerer in Scotland. Mahajan has discovered a mysterious power in the uncharted country to the north - a power that could be the legendary Holy Grail. The Rajthanans have already assembled an army to capture Mahajan. Jack has with nothing to lose now. He agrees to lead his own men, disguised as porters for the conquerors, on the same gruelling march. Their hope is to find a weapon that will free England from her oppressors. But they will find something even more powerful. 'This impressive debut fuses fantasy with alternate history, reversing the British Empire's conquest of India. Wilson's version of 19th-century England has been invaded and conquered by the Indian empire of Rajthana, which rules all of Europe with vast armies and a magical source known as sattva . . . The mix of Arthurian legend and Hindu mysticism make this breakneck-paced adventure a rich and engaging read.' Publishers Weekly on Land of Hope and Glory
