[i]-xvii,(1),-422,(8). 8vo, beige car d covers. "The English think of Arthur as their own - stamped on the landscape in scores of placenames, echoed in the names of their princes even today. Yet if the English had anything to do with a historical Arthur, it was as his bitterest enemies and hi-jackers of the British heritage. This book, which brings together the work of leading international scholars, is the first comprehensive treatment of Arthurian literature in the English languageto the end of the Middle Ages and traces the process by which the Arthuria n legends were assimilated to become an important part of the English cultural heritage. Literary studies are interspersed with chapters on the political and social manifestations of the Arthurian legend, the influence of continental romance tradition, and the mediaeval legacy to later centuries of English literature." -- from rear cover.
