Product description

The Life of Sir Aglovale De Galis
Clemence Housman

1st Edition published by Methuen, London (1905)

In original green cloth boards with gold lettering, a bit rubbed and corners bumped, neat name plate on inner board "Bright in Fame" "Jeremy Maddison-Roberts". Pages clean and tight, uncut, with a bit of spotting around edges.

Clemence Housman was the sister of poet AE Houseman and author of the Gothic Horror novel The Werewolf. Originally published in 1905 The Life of Sir Aglovale de Galis is a psychological reconstruction of the life of a minor character in Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, showing the dark underside of the Round Table. It is a Job-like tale of the rogue knight Aglovale, son of King Pellinore, and his path 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 achievement, a work of such impact that famed mystery novelist Ellis Peters called it "By far the finest work on an Arthurian theme since Malory."
