  • The Role Of Margaret In Le Morte D Arthur

Lancelot and his party represent the Yorkists, Henry VI played Arthur, and Guinevere, locked in a tower, represents Margaret as she defended herself from outside attack and dealt with her actual imprisonment. As the fifteenth century came towards a close, Malory’s English canon of Arthurian lore preserved morality developed in response to Margaret’s actions and the Treasons Act and the consequences for the immoral. Le Morte D’Arthur contains eight books of adventures that warn both genders of the cost of adultery – a marked change from his predecessors. The book opens with a discussion of Arthur’s youth and his adventures until his battles in Rome.

Malory foreshadows the consequences of Lancelot’s obsession through the actions of a servant…
