I wanted an academic overview of the Arthurian mysteries according to what little fictional accounts exist and this book came through in aces. It gets a little long-winded in places, but definitely took care of my own research needs and was very helpful

The book analyses the enchantresses of the Arthurian romances (Morgan le Fay, the Lady of the Lake...) and their role in the stories we all know and enjoy. The analysis is done mostly through feminist criticism, but there are also interesting sections on magic. Overall, I found it a very engaging and informative book. The only fault that I noticed - and this is very personal, of course - is that very little space is devoted to the links between Morgan and her possible Celtic or pre-Celtic ancestors. Having read Loomis and Paton, I expected more on the topic - and perhaps something new. However, this is a very good book, to be read together with, for example, "On Arthurian Women. Essay in Memory of Maureen Fries" (2001).
