Thanks for reading.
I should mention that for Percivale's story I'm cribbing not from
Malory but from Robert Lancelyn Green, whose story Sir Percival of
Wales appears in The Mammoth Book of Arthurian Legends, Mike Ashley
ed. Also, AKOTAS' version of Lancelot's abduction by the four queens
was partly informed by that volume's The Temptation of Lancelot by
Peter Valentine Timlett, where I encountered the notion that Lancelot
entertained no designs on Guenevere until Morgan told him everyone knows she
has it for him.
Presently I'm in the middle of Arthur Machen's Guinevere and Lancelot. I haven't picked the book up for weeks, though, because I was put off by that Machen has it that Guenevere secured Lancelot's affections by magic. Notwithstanding that the Lancelot story was probably inspired by the Tristram story which has a love potion in some versions, I've never, ever elsewhere encountered the notion that the love between Guenevere and Lancelot was anything but internally organic. Anyone else even seen that?
Percivale has a gag about how polite he is in his first set too. Those of you familiar with his story know where that's leading.
