Arthurian Challenge--Go!

Hello, fellow Arthurians!  I am so excited about this year's challenge.  We are going to have a lot of fun! 


Please comment and tell me what you are going to read first, or what you are excited about.

I think I want to start with some Chretien de Troyes--it's a long time since I read Lancelot.  I've just read a couple of the really old chronicles (Nennius and Gildas), so now I'm going to go for some fanciful adventure.  I'm also going to start reading Arthur's Britain, which is quite a long book and I'm sure will go slowly.

The Knight of the Cart (Lancelot!)

My first one will be the one you suggested, The Four Arthurian Romances, which I am very excited about. I won't be able to start it until after January, however, because I have my hands full with three right now.

I will begin with Once and Future King since one of y Goodreads groups are conveniently reading it too. Then I will be indulging in some older stuff, like Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, or Le Morte D'Arthur.

My copy of Chretien De Troyes' Arthurian Romances arrived this morning so I'll start with that one. Thanks again for hosting! I'm looking forward to this challenge.
