The first book John Steinbeck read as a child was the Caxton "Morte d'Arthur," and he considered it one of the most challenging tasks of his career to modernize the stories of King Arthur. "These stories are alive even in those of us who have not read them. And, in our day, we are perhaps impatient with the words and the stately rhythms of Malory. I wanted to set the stories down in meaning as they were written, leaving out nothing and adding nothing." Also included are the letters John Steinbeck wrote to his literary agent, Elizabeth Otis, and to Chase Horton, the editor of this volume, about his work on "King Arthur,"

this is at once stunningly beautiful and completely accessible, a gorgeous book in every way--except that it is unfinished.
