Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explores how various social groups have altered the Arthurian myth since the Middle Ages to empower it in such a way that they can then draw power from it. The 17 essays discuss such aspects as Levi-Strauss on communications, the knight as reader, Henry V, discovering graves, Spenser, the English Revolution, Tennyson, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and the comic book Camelot 3000.
