Abstract/Description: This thesis explores Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte Darthur, a celebrated Middle English text that continues to captivate readers more than 600 years after its first printing. One of Morte's enduring mysteries is the cause of its tragic end. In order to explore the tension between fate and free will, this study examines the deaths of Gawain, Arthur, Lancelot, and Guinevere. The close readings establish a pattern for the Malorian tragic death that moves from errors made in blindness, to awakening and repentance, and finally to redemption. With the tragic arc established, this study considers the motivation behind Malorian tragedy and its effects.
