Bradley Sands’ Reading Notes
Bradley Sands recently found notes he had written about a book on King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. He has retyped these notes into a blog post. I am linking to them here because I thought his notes were funny.
My favorite note:
First quest for round table knights – happens during Arthur’s wedding feast. Deer runs in, followed by hunting dog and hounds. Dog knocks over knight. Knight grabs dog and rides away. Damsel shows up, says it’s her dog and she wants it back. Unfamiliar knight rides up and kidnaps her. Arthur assigns three knights to each find the deer, dog and knight, and damsel. Bring these things together. “This adventure was made for the feast.” I guess Merlin set it up with magic. Gawain and another knight (probably non-round table) fight over deer. I am confused.
