What began as the tales of a Dark Age warlord developed into one of the great story cycles of Western civilization, full of archetypical themes and personalities. Over the centuries it’s taken on the form of folk history, morality story, grand romance, swashbuckling adventure and high fantasy.
In recent years there’s been a growing interest in looking behind myths in order to tell them in terms of the human–rather than fantasy–perspective. This has led to historical fiction in which the culture and climate of the times, as well as the psychology of the different characters, are what give the stories their power. Persia’s Guinevere Trilogy is one such work, told by Guinevere herself. How well she succeeded can be judged by the reader responses below.
