Overview

Arthurian Literature by Women: An Anthology is a collection of Arthurian poems, stories, and plays by women, from Marie de France to the present, all of which are either significant examples of Arthurian literature or innovative interpretations of Arthurian tradition. Rather than reproducing brief selections from contemporary novels that are readily available, the volume collects and reprints works that have generally been overlooked by students of the Arthurian legend. The volume will be especially interesting to those studying or teaching Women and the Arthurian Legend or any other aspect of myth, fantasy, popular literature, or women's studies.
