Overview

Announcing a New Series
The stories and legends of King Arthur, the Round Table, and the Grail have been with us for centuries, in an endless variety of forms. From medieval texts to popular films, modernist literature to feminist fantasy, from the sixth through the 21st centuries, few literary subjects have inspired such fertile ground for cultural elaboration.

This dynamic field is the subject for a new book series, Worlds of King Arthur. The series will explore a wide range of topics related to the stories and legends of Arthur, and the great variety of literary and cultural texts which they have inspired. Including worlds of literary criticism, cultural studies, and history, the series provides a venue for the publication of the most significant new works in Arthurian Studies.

For centuries, the Arthurian legends have fascinated and inspired countless writers, artists, and readers, many of whom first became acquainted with the story as youngsters. From the numerous retellings of Malory and versions of Tennyson for young people to the host of illustrated volumes to which the Arthurian Revival gave rise, from the Arthurian youth groups for boys (and eventually for girls) run by schools and churches to theschool operas, theater pieces, and other entertainment for younger audiences, from the Arthurian juvenile fiction sequences and series to the films and television shows featuring Arthurian characters, children have learned about the world of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
