The whole subject is brought up to date - Arthurian buffs will want this book. - Daily Telegraph

Who was the real Arthur? Why were his knights so famous? Was he buried at Glastonbury? Richard Barber takes the story from the anonymous 8th century chronicler who first listed his battles to the novelists of the 20th century. A clear and readable account of the development of the stories about Arthur and his court from the earliest times to the present day.

From Library Journal:

Barber traces the development of Arthur, one of the greatest of all heros, from his actual life, about which we know little, through his remolding into legend by various generations to reflect their culture, to his continuing modern appeal. This book, perhaps the best one-volume survey of the entire Arthurian field (especially of German, French, and English works) for the nonspecialist, provides a good overview of the legend's development as it was told and retold, embellished by other stories. Recommended both for public and academic libraries.Carolyn M. Craft, English, Philosophy, & Modern Language Dept., Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
