The Oxford Guide to Arthurian Literature and Legend is a great starting place for those who have waded into Arthuriana and need some grounding in the multiple elements of the wide-ranging legend. This guide is comprehensive, detailed, and relatively concise (as much as anything which takes on the whole of the legend can be). It has sections on Arthur in History and Chronicles, the Grail, Merlin, Malory, and Geoffrey on Monmouth. It includes an index of people, places, and things in the legend. The book's general index is very thorough and, for a smaller reference, it is quite useful. I will pull it off my shelf in the future when I teach Arthurian legends for quick reference. This summer, I am keeping it beside me as I read through Malory.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
