The Double Life of Malory's Lancelot du Lake

  title={The Double Life of Malory's Lancelot du Lake},
  author={Janet Jesmok},
  pages={81 - 92}
Lancelot, Malory's paragon of chivalry, harbors a defiant alter-ego first evident only through double adversaries, but later erupting in violent action generally repressed by the chivalric code. Through this dark Other, Malory develops his hero's subjectivity as he interrogates fifteenth-century knighthood.
