Why are you so interested in knights? I used to like that stuff, but as it's become more associated with the alt right i've moved away to becoming a scholar of the ottoman dynasty.

The epics. Morgante and Orlando Innamorato exceptional starts. These are legit suggestions. They will lead you to find amazing literature that you won't regret reading.

don quixote obviously, if you read it the priest and the barber give good recommendations about chivalry books that don't deserve burning somewhere in there, so more material

Amadis de Gaula and Palmerin of England are both pretty good.
>>
Tirant lo Blanc my personal choice
>>
The Knight in the Panther's skin is a fun adventure about beta knights turning alpha. They fight Indian Pirates and conquer the shit out of India, its fun

Il cavaliere invisibile, by Calvino

Orlando Furioso is the best imo. If you don't mind Elizabethan English, then the Hartington translation is far and away the best

George RR Martin's Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is quite enjoyable light fiction, especially the first story, where the main character becomes a knight. Delightful stuff desu.

Honestly I'd still read Le Morte and the de Troyes romances first, if only to appreciate how well White rendered Arthurian myth
