Arthur: The Once and Future King


Arthur's condition is the human condition, at once noble and imperfect. He is a man who rose to greatness in his time and fell, a victim of his own twisted progeny. Arthur grovels before Gromer yet faces up to Mordred. He confronts the Green Knight yet defers the challenge to Gawain. He turns his head to Guinevere & Lancelot's deceptions for love of Lancelot and the fellowship of knights. In a legend cycle filled with many symbols, he is a symbol of the humanity of all great men, of all kings past and to come: the once and future king.

"Yet some men say in many parts of England that King Arthur is not dead, but had by the will of our Lord Jesu into another place. And men say that he shall come again and he shall win the holy cross. Yet I will not say that it shall be so, but rather I will say, Here in this world he changed his life." - Morte Darthur
