The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips: review

King Arthur: a lost play?
What ho: I've reviewed the excellent The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips for The Daily Telegraph. Read it here, then go and buy it IMMEDIATELY. A blissful meta-fiction that was one of my books of the year.

  1. The book poses mysteries. How is the authenticity of a work to be established. How does one guard against forgery. What opportunities exist for restitution. The Shakespearean themes, the play on twins, create a fertile field for literary magic. The play, by someone, rounds out the story. This is highly original.
