Overview

In Approaches to Teaching the Arthurian Tradition, instructors who have taught Arthurian material in contexts from high school to graduate school draw on their experience to address a range of challenges: Where does one begin a course that embraces the most important continuous tradition of British literary history? Which works from which periods and countries should one include? What kinds of background sources in mythology and Celtic tradition are most helpful? What is the place of history, art, music, or film in such a course? This volume, like others in the Approaches series, is divided into two parts. "Materials" surveys editions of medieval and modern texts and anthologies and highlights reference works, supplemental readings, and aids to teaching. "Approaches" contains twenty-five essays on teaching Arthuriana. Topics include background studies, interdisciplinary courses, major authors (e.g., Chr tien de Troyes, Gottfried, Wolfram, Malory, and Tennyson), and specific pedagogical approaches such as teaching the Arthurian tradition through film, popular culture, and archaeology.
