    The passion of love, treachery of betrayal and triumph of justice. It is not often today that we find three such vastly different characteristics woven into a tale so vividly. The epic Le Morte Darthur not only possesses these three characteristics, but delves deeply into the meaning and soul of them, most decidedly in the story of Sir Pelleas and Lady Ettard.

In this story there were three different events that each happened in three stages: The three hunts of the Lord, the three seductions by the Lady, and

    However, he doesn't think about the possibility that what the hag will want may turn out to be even worse, considering the fact that honor and personal integrity were valued more than life in those times.

The hag saves him from a certain death and then requests that he marry her. In light of the events, the knight should

    Identity in Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur It can be difficult to define the unifying themes of Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur ; it can seem a tangle of random adventures mired with magic and religion, love and fate.

These books make up the longest section of the work, yet Trystram plays no role in the search for the Holy Grail or
