Concluding ‘The Fall of Arthur’ – Canto VI Finished!

Fall of Arthur

Canto VI: The Departure of Gawain

In what feels like an historic moment, the long-worked on Canto VI – following from the fifth Canto of Tolkien’s unfinished poem The Fall of Arthur – is finally complete.

It’s been almost a year since I first started work on this project (and here’s hoping I won’t take as long to complete the other planned cantos).

If this is the first time you’re reading about this little project of mine, head over to the first post to learn how it all started.

As I’ve said many times, I’m in no way attempting to do the impossible and write at the same level of Tolkien. But hopefully, I have captured some of the style of writing and a feel of the Old English metre (which is not strictly adhered to).

I’ve done some reshuffling and re-structuring on how I plan to continue the poem. In fact, two more Cantos will follow in order to complete the Arthurian cycle.

In the meantime, please enjoy the following. It will most probably be revised at a later stage, but is certainly in a finished state.
