Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beginning with an introduction that examines the portrayal of the characters of Lancelot and Guinevere from their origins to the present day, this collection of 16 essays-five of which appear here for the first time-puts particular emphasis on the appearance of the two characters in medieval and modern literature. Besides several studies exploring feminist concerns, the volume features articles on the representation of the lovers in medieval manuscript illuminations (18 plates focus on scenes of their first kiss and the consummation of the adultery), in film, and in other visual arts. A 200-item bibliography completes the volume.

Book News Annotation:

Examines the portrayal of the famous Arthurian lovers through the ages, particularly in medieval and modern literature. Among the 16 essays, five of them original, are feminist studies and analyses of the characters' appearance in manuscript illuminations, film, and other visual media. Some of the topics are Guinevere's transvestitism, Lancelot as a flawless hero in a symmetrical world, and the female reader.
