King Arthur is dim, and his Knights all bonkers

I am reading the Acts of King Arthur and his Noble Knights by John Steinbeck based on the manuscripts of Thomas Malory – it’s exciting stuff but somewhat disillusioning – King Arthur is not bright and really rather nasty, the Knights are all bonkers, Merlin a conflicted smartass and the women manipulative and unfaithful – still I am only a quarter of the way through and it could improve – however I doubt it as modern life seems to be a parallel universe, and observing the world at the moment, Malory and Steinbeck are not just telling stories but reflecting real life people and their quandaries…nothing has changed…..
