Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This monumental work involves over 50 scholars and contains a wide range of entries in the arts (visual arts, music, television, and film); Arthurian characters; history, legend, and archaeology; themes, motifs, and objects; and a wealth of literatures (Celtic, Dutch, medieval English, postmedieval English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hispanic, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian/Serbo-Croatian, Scandinavian, Tagalog, and Yiddish). Its clear introduction, good select bibliography, bibliographies under many entries, cross-references, and illustrations make it a useful reference for both specialist and general reader. Indeed, it is a work worthy of the greatest and most international of legends. Essential. Carolyn M. Craft, English, Philosophy, & Foreign Languages Dept., Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.

Format: Paperback
This is probably one of the single most authorative Arthurian sourcebooks I have ever seen, giving detailed information on thousands of ballads, epics, manuscripts, fairy tales, poems, novels, plays, and movies concerning Arthur and his knights, in virtually every language and culture conceivable from Hebrew to Welsh to Tagalog. There is also a smattering of black-and-white drawings throughout, and some entries pretaining to the historical basis of the Arthurian Cycles, all of which are accurate and informative.
