Hey /lit/, I was wondering if there were any sites/videos/threads/anything that you knew of discussing the multiple different versions of King Arthur and how the characters, stories, and writing style were different.
Specifically the Idylls of the King, Le Morte d'Arthur, and The Once and Future King.
There has to had been some sort of article on this on some university website or something to that nature.
