Acerca de


This book provides for the first time in over seventy-five years a single, comprehensive, up-to-date account of the fortunes of the Arthurian story in England from the time of Malory to the beginning of the Victorian period. After a brief survey of the earliest forms of the legend, the author examines the slow decline of the myth in the English Renaissance until its near extinction by the middle of the eighteenth century, despite the attraction which it held for Spenser, Drayton, Jonson, and Dryden. Succeeding chapters show that even through the legend's vitality was reduced by both Dryden and Fielding, the Romantic movement brought Arthur back to life, Minor figures such as William Hilton and Richard Hole, together with Scott and Wodsworth, though they did not produce great poems on the subject, are shown nevertheless to have responded seriously to the legend. The book concludes with an England ready in its interests and sympathies for the great flowering of the Arthurian story among the Victorians. Throughout this survey, which covers both the major figures and a number of hitherto unexamined minor authors, James D. Merriman is concerned with several questions of considerable interest both scholarly and critical.
