Sir Percival dealt with the Devil's attempt at tempting him into sin by castrating himself?If you did know all those things, clearly you’ve read Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, and I pity you. No one should have to slog through that pile of continuity errors and insipid descriptions of jousts. I’ve spent years of my life poring over all twenty-one Books of this foundational work of fantasy literature, dreadful as it is. Here, for your amusement and edification, I recount, dissect, and ruthlessly mock each ridiculous plot contrivance, each self-contradictory anecdote, and each unnamed damsel who runs in from offscreen and dies.Arthur Dies at the End volume 4: Sir Galahad is Better Than You covers Books XI through XVII of Le Morte d’Arthur. Here you’ll find the full account of the Quest for the Holy Grail, including such diverse wonders as a lion that shapeshifts into another lion, a laser light show, and some very suspicious dream interpretation! Percival's sister heroically sacrifices herself for the sake of a castle full of people who immediately die anyway! All this and Sir Gawaine feeling sorry for himself!ARTHUR DIES AT THE END: I read Le Morte d’Arthur so you don’t have to!...

    While arguably weaker than the earlier "Arthur Dies at the End" volumes, Winston's humorous approach to Malory's text never ceases to amuse, especially with the running gags that have continued from earlier volumes. I can't help but be entertained by the Lancelot nap count or Gawaine's unfortunate habit of straight up murdering fellow round table knights. I think that the weakness of the source material is what hurts this concordance, as Malory's foreshadowing of the grail quest, plus the pop cultural osmosis of the same means that the humor has to be subsumed to the narrative, and the Grail Quest narrative is one of the weaker strands of the Arthurian mythos despite its pivotal nature.
