Arthurian Fictions

English 140

Usual Description

An introduction to some key texts in the Arthurian tradition, one of the most durable and variable bodies of European legend. Medieval works will be our primary focus, though we will also look at later reinventions of the legend in art, literature, and film. In tracing the changing forms, uses, and meanings of Arthurian materials, we will consider how texts are shaped by historical contexts and how narratives help to shape cultural values in turn.
