About this Book

This Companion offers a chronological sweep of the canon of Arthurian literature - from its earliest beginnings to the contemporary manifestations of Arthur found in film and electronic media.

  • Features an impressive range of well-known international contributors
  • Examines contemporary additions to the Arthurian canon, including film and computer games
  • Underscores an understanding of Arthurian literature as fundamental to western literary tradition
