'... Bryden's contribution to scholarship lies in her bringing Arthurian legend into dialogue with a range of cultural discourses and in directing attention to new titles of relevance to Arthurian studies.' Victorian Studies 'In this thorough and perceptive survey of how the Victorians interpreted and extended earlier versions of Arthurian legends Inga Bryden has no difficulty in establishing the significance and importance of her subject... Dr Bryden's book provides a model of interdisciplinarity, dealing as it does with literature, history, theology, anthropology and the visual arts, identifying their interconnections.' Literature and History '... Bryden's book is engagingly written... Notes are full and useful without being overwhelming, and a comprehensive bibliography [...] will help those who wish to pursue some of the subjects she raises... her study offers a rich mine of inspiration for future, more detailed scholarship... an important work, useful to medievalists and Victorianists alike.' Pre-Raphaelite Studies '... this is a fascinating study, and one which can certainly be recommended.' Tennyson Research Bulletin
