Overview

Overview

`An indispensable component of any historical or Arthurian library.' NOTES AND QUERIES
This latest issue of Arthurian Literaturecontinues the tradition of the journal in combining theoretical studies with editions of primary Arthurian texts. There is a special focus on Glastonbury Abbey's involvement in Arthurian legend from the twelfth century on, with a contribution on Guenevere's tomb, an annotated edition of the hitherto unpublished Glastonbury relic list, and the second part of the edition of the fourteenth-century Glastonbury tablets begun in Arthurian Literature 15. The volume also includes a study of the youth of the Grail hero, Percival; an annotated translation of the fourteenth-century De origine gigantum; and an important essay by the leading Tudor historian, DAVID STARKEY, on the waysin which Henry VIIII used Malory's Arthur as a model for Tudor kingship.
This is the final issue edited by FELICITY RIDDY and JAMES CARLEY; their successor is KEITH BUSBY. Contributors: CHRISTOPHER YOUNG, CHARLES T. WOOD, JEANNE KROCHALIS, JAMES P. CARLEY, MARTIN HOWLEY, CLAUDE LUTTRELL, DAVID STARKEY, RUTH EVANS
