Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Like the books it discusses, (it) serves many audiences and serves them amply and well. (...) A valuable resource for courses in the history of medievalism and modern Arthurian literature. STUDIES IN MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE TEACHINGA well-researched, engagingly written and substantial contribution to our understanding of the ways a visual tradition shaped and reinterpreted the Arthurian legends. (...) An impressive and accessible contribution to the tradition of reinventing the Arthurian legends. VICTORIAN STUDIES Once again Barbara Lupack's Arthurian research makes clear that she possesses an impressive command of the lore surrounding the legendary king. Her exhaustive enquiries into all aspects of the illustrated Arthur are continuously revealed in this most recent study. (...) Makes for an accessible introduction to the highlights of Arthurian book illustration and a welcome addition to her previous body of work. PRE-RAPHAELITE STUDIES Illustrating Camelot is (...) an exemplary and welcome addition to the relatively small collection of scholarly works dedicated to the visual Arthurian tradition. JOURNAL OF POPULAR CULTURES A model of what scholarship should be. (...) Students of any stripe of the Arthurian are once again in the debt of the Lupacks who have produced yet another groundbreaking, definitive study that expands greatly our appreciation and understanding of the ever expanding legend of the truly once and future king. ARTHURIANA There is a lot of pleasure to be had in the reading of this, an obvious labour of love for the author, whose enthusiasm for her subject is as infectious as her wide research is impressive.
