Well, well, well.... I have just been reading The Legends of King ARthur and his Knights by Sir James Knowles.
Really old style words, I like it. Anyway, I came across this passage:
So they mounted their horses - armed at all points - and rode into a vast forest; and when they had passed through it, they came to a great plain, and the weather being very hot about noontide, Sir LAncelot greatly longed to sleep. Then Sir Lionel espied a great apple-tree standing by a hedge, and said, "Brother, yonder is a fair shadow where we may rest ourselves and horses."
"I am full glad of it," said Sir Lancelot, "for all these seven years I have not been so sleepy."
This sounds too much like Old Man Willow and the Forest for me. And you know what? Lancelot DOES get an enchantment laid on him. But it was Queen Morgan le Fay, the baddie, not the tree. Another thing, more picky, I also noticed:
And as he went towards the ship a knight of Knight ARthur, named SIr Dinadan, who sought him came and said, "Fair knight, ere that you pass out of this country, I pray you joust with me!"
"With a godo will," said he.
Well, it may be just me, but Dinadan sounds like Dunadan, you know Aragorn? But he's not like Aragorn. Many would say he is cowardly. Well, I say he's sensible, more sensible than Lancelot and Tristram and all that. But for all their recklessness, they're the most famous knights, and maybe that tells us something. Hmmmm.......
