The King's Home

I was an Arthur nut growing up.  I devoured Tennyson in English before I knew what Thou meant.  I was wowed by sword fights in Malory's Morte D'Arthur, and I giggled at the bad sex scenes in the movie Excalibur.  

Yes, Arthur and I were tight.

Based on Lord Alfred Tennyson's Idle of the Kings, The King's Home is a story of the final few breaths shared between Arthur and Guinevere before he leaves her and rides to his final battle. Wrought with betrayal, passion and cute boys, Tennyson's epic poem is a great read if you've never checked it out!
