A comprehensive survey of one of the most important texts of the Middle Ages.
Malory's Morte Darthur is now a canonical and widely-taught text. Recent decades have seen a transformation and expansion of critical approaches in scholarship, as well as significant advances in understanding its milieux:textual, literary, cultural and historical. This volume adds to and updates the influential Companion of 1996, offering scholars, teachers and students alike a full guide to the text and the author. The essays it contains provide a synthetic overview of, and fresh perspectives on, the key questions about and contexts connected with the Morte.

MEGAN G. LEITCH is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Cardiff University; CORY JAMES RUSHTON is Associate Professor in the Department of English at St Francis Xavier University, Canada.

Contributors: Dorsey Armstrong, Thomas Crofts, Siân Echard, Rob Gossedge, Daniel Helbert, Amy Kaufman, Megan Leitch, Andrew Lynch, Catherine Nall, Ralph Norris, Raluca Radulescu, Lisa Robeson, Meg Roland, Cory Rushton, Masako Takagi, Kevin Whetter.

MEGAN G. LEITCH is is Reader in English Literature at Cardiff University, Wales.

"All essays are written by experts and reflect the erudite and sophisticated engagement these scholars have with Malory's text-its historical, cultural, and political contexts and especially recent theoretical concepts. This volume is required reading for those who wish to go beyond literary formalism. Among the standout and exceedingly current essays are those on gender, emotion, and secular and spiritual concerns in the text. Highly Recommended." CHOICE
"I will not hesitate to recommend the New Companion to undergraduate and graduate students. Taken together, the essays provide engaging and accessible investigations of important topics, issues, and questions relating to the Morte Darthur, and demonstrate a range of ways of reading and approaching the text." THE RICARDIAN
"An invaluable resource, which will doubtless, in turn, lead to further fruitful labour in that fair field." PARERGON
