Some of the words in this classic of early modern English will be unfamiliar, but Bill Homewood's deep, resonant voice carries the stories of King Arthur and his knights. He doesn't create distinctive voices for all the many knights and damsels, but the author did little to make them more than types. Arthur, Guenever, Launcelot, and a few others are closer to being characters in the modern sense, and Homewood fleshes them out accordingly. Those who know only the more recent versions of the Arthurian saga may be surprised at how much has been left out, but the material is vast, and even Malory left out some of it (such as the end of the story of Tristram and Iseult).
