Reading Arthur in verse may be a harder slog than prose, but Tennyson makes it well worth it. You can read it online:

although I found the footnotes contained in the Penguin addition essential to understanding Tennyson's allusions.

Don't miss chapter 10, when Arthur will make your heart sing with his recollections of the early days of the Round Table....then break as he confronts Guinevere.
