  • King Arthur And Merlin - 1,302 words
    ... different aspects of Merlin Merlin is a popular character when it comes to the stories of King Arthur and other stories dealing with the Arthurian age. In most of the stories written about him they refer to him as the magician, kingmaker, and prophet. We also know him as the one that takes care of Arthur from birth, who set him on the throne, who established him there in the early days of his reign as king.

  • Merlin - 1,112 words
    Merlin Throughout the ages Merlin has been depicted as a druid, bard, necromancer, magician and prophet. Though we may never know if any of his fictitious interpretations are truthful, we speculate he was nothing more than a Celtic bard who lived in the 500's near Solway Frith. It is said that this strange poet, going under the alias of Myrddin, was a madman and a prophet. Myrddin's claim to fame was creating so much tension between the British chieftains of his time that they fought each other in the Battle of Arderydd. After the battle Myrddin supposedly goes insane and wanders into the forest of Celidon. He is later found dead on a riverbank nearby. The mythical Merlin has a far deeper st ...

He lived, if indeed he lived at all, in Wales and southern England during the dawn of Christianity in those lands, long before written historical records were kept.

Howells said at Twain's funeral, Clemens was sole, incomparable, the Lincoln of our literature. (Cox, 220) The events in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court take place in the sixth century during the time of King Arthur. There are knights and ogres, there are princes and princesses, and there are evil magicians and immoral superstitions. In the sixth century, there were no newspapers, no phones, no hygiene, no cameras, and most importantly, no common sense. However, this all changes when a Connecticut Yankee, Hank Morgan, is hit in the head by a crowbar ...

  • Arthurian Legend Is A Group Of Stories Of King Arthur And His Knights Of The Round Table The Legends Originated As A Collecti - 1,573 words
    Arthurian Legend is a group of stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The legends originated as a collection of folk tales passed down by oral tradition. As the stories spread through Europe different scenes as well as different versions appear in different countries. Consequently some of the stories have minor contradictions with each other. However, even though the story has been modified on several occasions, the same basic stories of adventure, romance, combat, betrayal, and chivalry remain the same. Stories of the rise and the fall of heroes are still very much at their core. One interesting part of the Arthur legend is that a real Arthur may have existed. A sixth ce ...

  • Explorations In Arthurian History - 767 words
    Explorations in Arthurian History The Romans The placing of Arthur is a difficult task, considering that we have so very little to go on and several conflicting traditions from which to draw. Most of the early tales of Arthur are Welsh. Some of the later tales are Scottish. A great many of the tales call Arthur King of the Britons, which can be taken to mean that he was king of just Britain, excluding Wales and Scotland. Sites with Arthur's name in them abound and, taken together, would probably cover the expanse of the isle of Britannia. Traditions passed down from generation to generation, first orally and then written, are just as much a part of history as cold facts. Yet it is cold facts ...

  • King Arthur - 394 words
    King Arthur There has been a lot of material written about the legendary King Arthur and although he has been a popular figure inliterature for over 800 years, not a lot is known about the real Arthur. It is believed that Arthur was a 5the-century British King named Riothamus (meaning "high king") who ruled from 454 - 470 A.D. and led an army into Gaul where he was defeated by the Goths of Burgundy. Two men by the names of Jordanes (6the century) and William (11the century) contributed to the legend of Arthur. Their input was perhaps the real basis of future adaptations of the story. Arthur appeared in literature as a national hero in a book written in Latin by Geoffrey of Monmouth called Hi ...

  • King Arthur And Beowulf - 989 words
    King Arthur And Beowulf Numerous stories about numerous heroes have been told and then retold. All of these heroes do different things and all of them have a different set of qualities which make them heroes. Due to the fact that there are only so many heroic adventures and qualities, most are shared in part with at least one other hero. Such is the case between the great hero, Beowulf, from the epic poem Beowulf and King Arthur from the story of Morte dArthur. These great heroes have strong similarities and a great deal of differences. Once their similarities have been compared and then dismissed it is evident that Beowulf is the greater hero of the two. True heroes do good things for good ...

Similar resemblances that can be found in both is their shadowy lineage, their major mortal flaws, and their nature to journey on epic quests.
