Find library resources on Arthurian legends


Arthurian Legend

Course Description

Though they are many centuries old, Arthurian legends play a prominent role in modern literature and entertainment.  Arthurian stories have been reinvented over the centuries to suit changing cultural notions.  We will examine how literature and film have dealt with these legends in English beginning with Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur written in the fifteenth century but will primarily focus on nineteenth- and twentieth-century adaptations.
