《亚瑟王传奇》由十个既相互独立又相互联系的故事组成。故事围绕英勇的亚瑟王、谋士梅林、圆桌骑士高文和传说中的天神伊德里斯等展开。伊德里斯有五个女儿,但其中最小的女儿摩根背叛了他。挟仇恨之火,摩根意图摧毁伊德里斯庇的亚瑟王统治下的王国并将梅林永久囚禁在了漫游之林的一棵树中。日复一日忍受着痛苦折磨的梅林,只有当预言中经历生死的女子出现时才能脱离苦海。但这样的女子是谁?她何时才能出现呢?而在那之后,又将发生什么呢?

The stories in this book can be read individually but they also come together as a single narrative. At the centre is the King, Merlin, Sir Gawain and the mythical god, Idris. Idris has five daughters, the youngest of whom has rebelled against him. Revengeful and malignant she has turned her attention to the destruction of the King and the everlasting imprisonment of his Counsellor, Merlin. Tormented by the pain of what was and what is, he has to be freed to soar eagle-like with Arthur high above the mountain tops. But who and where is the young woman of the prophecy of life and death, who can release him? After that what can ensue in the history of the world?

So it was that all the Chieftains of the land having failed to withdraw the sword from the stone, gathered with Merlin, the Counsellor of the realm, in the great hall. They were considering what was to be done since the Head Chieftain or King could not be proclaimed without the royal weapon being freed from the rock. It was then that Arthur, the son of Dragonhead, entered the hall with the sword in his hand.
