Introduction to Arthurian Literature

Description

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of the Arthurian literary and legendary cycle over a broad sweep of time, from its origins in early medieval Wales to its continued popularity today. It covers the early development of some of the central characters and narrative elements in Wales, the flowering of the romance cycle in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the “codification” of the legends by Malory in the fifteenth century, and the significant revival of interest in Arthur in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This course provides useful background for further courses in medieval studies and English literature.
