Time to call it uits on this one I really really liked it; it's beautiful and moving But it's also very slow and so little happens or rather a lot happens but it's always the same that I just ground to a halt I've tried going back to it a couple of times and each time I think wow this is great I'd love to finish it but then I go read other things It's entirely my failure I think it's a wonderful book

H toward spiritual redemption Written in the fine slow prose of contemplation Sir Aglovale was Clemence Housman s third and final novel It is also her finest achieveme. One of the finest books I've ever read and probably the finest Arthurian novel Clemence Housman writes this novel in a style similar to Malory which is befitting considering how tied to Le Morte this novel is Aglovale is a minor character in arthuriana outshined by his brothers Lamorak and Tor and especially Percivale one of the Grail Knights Housman fills out this conflicted mans life from his villainous ways early in his life to his fostering of his young brother one of the finest knights of the Round Table The fact that this book is out of print is a crime

I was sitting on the fence about whether or not to give this book three or four stars It’s not an unalloyed “4” but neither is it a mere “3” In the end evidently I went with four stars It’s one of the better Arthurian themed books I’ve read and there are some scenes in it that will stick with me for a while about that in the spoiler laden thoughts belowI would recommend this novel to anyone interested in the Matter of Britain who wants to read about a fully developed character torn between the basest and highest impulses of human nature and who also wants to do it while reveling in the archaic style of Malory or de Troyes The writing style imitates that of Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur as it is ostensibly written by a friend or follower of his and it leaves no prisoners There are passages from the book where I’m still not uite sure what happened though later context usually makes things evident1 It can be off putting and was for the first few chapters but as with my experiences reading Marlon James and Sandra Newman persistence pays off and you’ll be well rewardedThe following thoughts contain significant spoilageview spoiler The Life of Sir Aglovale de Galis recounts the exploits of one of Arthur’s obscure knights the oldest legitimate son of King Pellinore He is burdened with the same base passions his father had in his youth and always comes second best behind his brothers Tor Lamorak and Percivale of Grail fame Yet he is also capable of great good as was Pellinore and is burdened with a conscience that tortures him Aglovale is also incapable of compassion which leads him to commit the cruelest murders and rapes when he indulges his passions Yet it serves him ill too when he acts responsibly as people find his judgment overly harsh and uncompromising He reminds me of Angelo from Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure Both men are accounted just and honest – excessively so – but neither understands that those traits must be balanced with mercy And both are sorely tempted and fall Shall we desire to raze the sanctuaryAnd pitch our evils there O fie fie fieWhat dost thou or what art thou AngeloDost thou desire her foully for those thingsThat make her good O let her brother live;Thieves for their robbery have authorityWhen judges steal themselves What do I love herThat I desire her to speak againAnd feast upon her eyes What is’t I dream onO cunning enemy that to catch a saintWith saints dost bait thy hook Most dangerousIs that temptation that doth goad us onTo sin in loving virtue Never could the strumpetWith all her double vigor art and natureOnce stir my temper Ever till nowWhen men were fond I smiled and wond’red how Act II scene iiOh heavensWhy does my blood thus muster to my heartMaking both it unable for itselfAnd dispossessing all my other partsOf necessary fitnessSo play the foolish throngs with one that swoundsCome all to help him and so stop the airBy which he should revive; and even soThe general subject to a well wished kinguit their own part and in obseuious fondnessCrowd to his presence where their untaught loveMust needs appear offenseFit thy consent to my sharp appetiteLay by all nicety and prolixious blushesThat banish what they sue for; redeem thy brotherBy yielding up thy body to my willOr else he must not only die the deathBut thy unkindness shall his death draw outTo ling’ring sufferance Answer
