myth that appealed to me the most was the story of King Arthur. The
story tells of a young boy, of only 15, was able to become the King of
all Britain. Arthur did this by being the only one who could pull the
sword from the marble stone. Though, Arthur had to prove himself to the
elite of Britain to become a knight who possessed the best qualities of
strength, courage and skill but blinded by only seeing the good in
others. He became the ruler of the Roman Empire, carried the great sword
Excalibur, fought to defend his thrown against those he believed to be a
friend and against his illegitimate son who before dying, wounds Arthur
that leads to his own death (Rosenberg, 2006).
think that the story of King Arthur is timeless because of all the
factors that are found in it; magic, knighthood, adventure, betrayal,
love affairs. There are just so many factors that are found that it can
appeal to a number of people with all types of interests. Most little
boys love to hear stories about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round
Table, or Excalibur the most powerful sword. The idea of the Lady of
the Lake can appeal to girls to show the kind of strength and importance
that a woman can have. The appeal of the story of King Arthur has been
an influence in multiple forms of literature, movies, television,
comics, music and more.
