SIR THOMAS MALORY
(USED PSEUDONYM MORTE D'ARTHUR)
English knight soldier
(1410? - 1471)

When the king was horsed thore,
  Launcelot lookys he upon,
    How courtesy was in him more
      Than ever was in any mon.
      - Harleian Library (Manuscript 2,252),
        British Museum [Courtesy]

The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.
      - Le Morte d'Arthur [Spring]

In May when every lusty heart flourisheth and burgeoneth, for as the season is lusty to behold and comfortable, so man and woman rejoice and gladden of summer coming with his fresh flowers: for winter with his rough winds and blasts causeth a lusty man and woman to cower, and sit fast by the fire. So in this season, as in the month of May, it befell a great anger and unhap that stinted not till the flower of chivalry of all the world was destroyed and slain; and all was long upon two unhappy knights, the which were named Agravaine and Sir Mordred, that were brethren unto Sir Gawiane.
      - Le Morte d’Arthur (final romance)
        [Books (First Lines)]

It befell in the days of Uther Pendragon, when he was king of all England, and so reigned, that there was a mighty duke in Cornwall that held war against him long time. And the duke was called the duke of Tintagil.
      - Le Morte d’Arthur (first romance)
        [Books (First Lines)]
