Ryan Klebe ENG 241 Professor Reynolds 2/19/2021 Homework 3 1. “The Myth of King Arthur’s Return” is essentially any event after his departure to the island of Avalon that alludes to his eventual return to reclaim his throne as The King of Britain. The myth was originally developed from a series of excerpts from: The History of the Kings of Britain (Geoffrey of Monmouth,) , Roman De Brut (Wace) , Brut (Layamon). Each text was written in it’s own style and offered it’s own details and explanation of events, and is why they are usually grouped together when referring to The Myth of King Arthur’s Return . Not much is known about King Arthur’s expected return, as few details were provided in the texts. All that is said of the matter is that “Arthur should yet come to help the English” (Layamon). 2. The History of the Kings of Britain seems to portray Arthur being defeated in battle and being forced to go to Avalon, while the other two texts seem to portray him being mortally wounded in battle (but not defeated), and his going to Avalon seemed of his own accord.
