‘Camelot’ Rolls into Ireland’s Ardmore Studios | The Irish Film & Television Network

July 10th, 2010

Woohoo! Filming has begun on the new 10-part tv miniseries based on Malory’s Morte dArthur: ‘Camelot’ Rolls into Ireland’s Ardmore Studios | The Irish Film & Television Network. King and Queen have been cast, along with several other major players. It has the potential to be very cheesy, but hopefully will avoid the most obvious glitzy traps of recent movies and shows. Keep your fingers crossed!

My favorite book: Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur

Sir Thomas Malory is, in my opinion, one of the greatest writers in the English language. He had a flair for elegant prose, covering topics rich in imagery and zest. I had the great fortune of meeting P.J.C. Field, the editor of the Oxford (Eugene Vinaver) Le Morte D’Arthur several years ago on a trip through the U.K.

I just found a new widget that shows images from the Malory text and thought I’d post it here. I hope you enjoy the text as much as I do, but you should really treat yourself to the P.J.C. Field edition (only $245 on Amazon).
