In Guinevere, Newman offers a reinterpretation of the Arthurian saga and as memorable as "The Mists of Avalon" and "The Hollow Guinevere book Read more Read less The Amazon Book Review/5(18).

This novel is the first of Sharan Newman's Guinevere trilogy and as for the others Guinevere trilogies I've read (Rosalind Miles, Nancy McKenzie, Persia Woolley) the first one is about Guinevere's childhood, her family and her meeting/marriage with Arthur/5.

'The Book of Guinevere' is an elegant anthology of poetry and prose, literature and legend, with accessible, lively commentary by Guinevere book scholar Andrea Hopkins Get A Copy Amazon/5. 'Guinevere' is a composite of the authors trilogy about Guinevere, 'The Warrior Queen', 'A Champion's Duty' and 'The Day of Destiny' which I bought at an incredibly discounted price/5().

The book of Guinevere is a great book for the Arthurian Guinevere book in everyone. The paintings that are encapsulated between its glossy pages are stellar, especially the front cover, which the painting "the Queen Guinevere Maying" by John Collier is, printed on, and on page 79 the painting of Tristan and Iseult is beautifully rendered in watercolor by Arthur Rackham/5(6).

The book tells the story of four girls named Guinevere—Vere, Win, Ginny, and Gwen—all of whom were left behind at the same convent by their parents.

They’re a sort of clique, and their bonding escalates when a group of soldiers comes to the sick ward of the convent/5. The Guinevere Deception is the first instalment in Kiersten White's new series: Camelot Rising.

This book takes Authorian lore and provides a new twist. Guinevere comes to Camelot to marry Arthur- but she is not the real Guinevere, she is Merlin's daughter, sent to protect King Arthur from an unknown threat/5. So, too, Guinevere's love for Launcelot was only a loan.

She returns for the last time to sleep with her husband, and Launcelot dies, to be buried in the castle with the bitterly ironic name of "Joyous Gard." The tragedy is finished. Previous The Day of Destiny.

Next Character Map. Guinevere Beck, an aspiring writer, is employed as a teaching assistant while simultaneously working on her thesis. When she strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he is instantly smitten with her.

Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest : Caroline Kepnes. Alone, Guinevere muses about herself and remembers some happy episodes of her life with Arthur. Her thoughts ramble on and she indulges in self-pity.

Suddenly an armed knight rides into the courtyard, and a whisper runs through the abbey: "The king. The king!" A few seconds more and Arthur confronts Guinevere in her room.

Guinevere, wife of Arthur, legendary king of Britain, best known in Arthurian romance through the love that his knight Sir Lancelot bore for her.

In early Welsh literature, one Gwenhwyvar was “the first lady of this island”; in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s inventive Historia regum Britanniae (early 12th century), she was named Guanhumara and was presented as a Roman lady. Despite Mr Kristian's efforts to portray Lancelot and Guinevere as a tragic love story, by the end of this book their relationship is an utterly childish, unrealistic joke.

The end is perhaps the worst part of the book. The author may have intended it to be bitterweet and poignant. Personally I found it ridiculous/5(). Guinevere's real name — and her true identity—is a secret.

She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

With the knowing eye and fiery voice of an accomplished storyteller, Alice Borchardt takes us back to the amazing world of a re-envisioned Camelot in the continuing Tales of Guinevere.

Remarkably strong, magically talented, a match for friend and foe alike, Guinevere has come into womanhood—and. White’s classic novels from to found in a single volume. There are few genres with as much staying power as Arthurian literature.

It began around (but Arthur may have been mentioned by a Welsh poet even earlier than that) and. Le Morte d'Arthur (originally spelled Le Morte Darthur, Middle French for "The Death of Arthur") is a Middle English reworking by Sir Thomas Malory of existing tales about the legendary King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin and the Knights of the Round interpreted existing French and English stories about these figures and added original material (e.g., the Author: Thomas Malory.

KIERSTEN WHITE is the New York Times bestselling author of The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, the Slayer series, the And I Darken trilogy, and many more novels. She lives with her family near the ocean in San Diego, which, in spite of its perfection, spurs her to dream of faraway places and even further-away times/5(37).

Guinevere is a great book. I read it in a day. I couldn't put it down. Sharan Newman's use of descriptive words had me feeling like I was living in that era.

I read the second book "The Chessboard Queen" when I was younger. It was refreshing to be able to read about Guinevere's childhood.

Please read all 3 books. I am about to begin on the third.5/5(4). Idylls of the King Summary. In the first Idyll, “The Coming of Arthur,” King Leodogran of Cameliard has to decide whether or not to marry off his only daughter, Guinevere, to the newly crowned King Arthur.

Arthur has driven the pagans (non-Christians) out of Jolly Olde England and re-established the rule of law among the warring smaller kingdoms within it.Across the dark water to the land of ancient Gaul, renegades take Cedwyn and the littl'uns farther from home and rescue.

Led by her heart rather than her head and without any thought for her safety, fifteen-year-old Guinevere sets out alone to save Cedwyn.Forgiveness is a splendid thing, but vengeance is much sweeter. Betrayed and abused by medieval writers, Guinevere was never disloyal to Arthur.
