I hate this author on principle for what he did to the legend of Arthur - all that courtly love junk - but......... well, yeah, on a certain level I do have to admit that there's a certain melancholy beauty in the story and it's possible he added a level of personification not previously present in the epic characters of Arthur's court and life. As a side benefit his name is so much fun to say.

read - er, mostly - this as part of an Arthurian lit class in college.
