Goodrich's most alarming fault is that she takes literature as history, leading to chapter after chapter of fiction, speculation, and wild conjecture. Goodrich's books are NOT the honest investigations of a scholar, and I urge people interested in King Arthur to talk to their English or history professors and discover books by historians, archaeologists, and literary historians who pursue the truth with objectivity and honesty.
After being reminded by a fellow reviewer that the research is "misapplied and misinterpreted" and re-reading my review, I thoroughly agree and if I could I would only give this book one star. After all what is this if not a book containing research. If the research, thorough as it may be, was not the correct way to go about delving into the subject matter, the book and conclusions within are without merit.

I love the books that Norma Goodrich writes. There is research in her books as well as story. You will enjoy all of them if you are a mid-evil period reader. Read morePublished on November 8, 2010 by Barbra L. Moran
