Malory interprets existing French and English stories about these figures and adds original material (the Gareth story).First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte dArthur is today perhaps the best-known work of Arthurian literature in English.

Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their principal source, including T. H. White in his popular The Once and Future King and Tennyson in The Idylls of the King.Idylls of the King, published between 1859 and 1885, is a cycle of twelve narrative poems by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892- Poet Laureate from 1850) which retells the legend of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthurs kingdom.

The whole work recounts Arthurs attempt and failure to lift up mankind and create a perfect kingdom, from his coming to power to his death at the hands of the traitor Mordred. Individual poems detail the deeds of various knights, including Lancelot, Geraint, Galahad, and Balin and Balan, and also Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. There is little transition between Idylls, but the central figure of Arthur links all the stories.

The poems were dedicated to the late Albert, Prince Consort. The Idylls are written in blank verse. Tennysons descriptions of nature are derived from observations of his own surroundings, collected over the course of many years.The dramatic narratives are not an epic either in structure or tone, but derive elegiac sadness from the idylls of Theocritus.

Idylls of the King is often read as an allegory of the societal conflicts in Britain during the mid-Victorian era.
