Celtic Myth and Athurian Romance by Roger Sherman Loomis
King Arthur was not an Englishman, but a Celtic warrior, according to Roger Sherman Loomis, whose special research into the background of the Arthurian legend has reveled findings which are both illuminating and highly controversial. The author sees the vegetarian goddess as the prototype of many damsels in Arthurian romance, and Athur's knights as the gods of sun and storm. If Loomis's arguments are accepted, where does this leave the historic Arthur? This fascinating study will keep the controversy of the "real" Arthur alive.
