|About the Book|
This is a short introduction to the Arthurian corpus from the oldest historical and folkloric origins of the stories through medieval courtly literature and ending briefly with modern adaptations of the 19th and 20th centuries. The book presupposes some general education on the part of the reader but minimal familiarity with the subject matter. It was therefore not very interesting to me as a person who is already quite familiar with the topic, but it would be a convenient source for someone who wanted a quick overview. I would recommend it for readers or authors of Arthurian fiction who wanted to know a little more about the history and scholarship.
