GEN*306*10 Description

Arthurian Literature

Throughout the Middle Ages, the story of King Arthur and his knights was continually adapted and eagerly retold in epics, romances, and histories alike. In this course, we will examine the development of the Arthurian legend from its Celtic roots through the signature English treatment of the story by Sir Thomas Malory. We will end the semester with a look at the continuation of the legend in modern film.
