In any case, after Geoffrey and Layamon, England produced no original writers on Arthur - as opposed to translators from the French - until the poet of Gawain (whom some critics suspect of translating) and Malory - also a translator, but on so grand a scale as to rank as truly original.

Hello,
Would you please be kind enough to clarify the blue part to me? Does the blue part talk about Malory? I mean; does it mean==> Malory was also a translator and ranked original?:confused:

Thank you
