This book takes a unique look at the Latin Arthurian tradition, placing authors such as Geoffrey of Monmouth in the context of Latin histories, monastic chronicles, saints' lives, and other Latin prose Arthurian narratives. Placing them against a background of the Angevin court of Henry II, the book introduces a new set of texts into the Arthurian canon and suggests a way to understand their place in that tradition. The unfamiliar works are summarized for the reader, and there are extensive quotations, with translations, throughout.

About the Author:

Sian Echard is an associate professor in the Department of English at the University of British Columbia.

Review:

"Echard's book provides a valuable resource and starting point for further study." Comitatus

"Thanks to Echard's efforts, at least the Latin tradition is now more readily accessible to us all. Arthurian Narrative in the Latin Tradition is an important study, one which deserves reprinting in paperback so that it can reach an even broader audience." Arthuriana

"Insofar as Echard's goal is to bring some very interesting material to the attention of a wider audience, the book certainly succeeds... she has brought a number of very interesting texts to our attention. Cambridge University Press has acquitted itself very well in making an attractiv small book nicely free of typographical errors and with footnotes placed at the foot of the page where they belong." Robert M. Stein, Journal of Medieval Latin

"Students of Arthurian literature will find Sian Echard's Arthurian Narrative in the Latin Tradition a useful and sensible study." Speculum

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Arthurian literature is a popular field, but most of the published work focuses on the vernacular tradition. This book, uniquely, looks at Latin Arthurian works. Geoffrey of Monmouth is treated at length and this is the first book to put him in a context which includes other Latin histories, monastic chronicles, saints' lives and other Latin prose Arthurian narratives. Like Geoffrey's works, most can be associated with the Angevin court of Henry II and by placing these works against the court background, this book both introduces a new set of texts into the Arthurian canon and suggests a way to understand their place in that tradition. The unfamiliar works are summarized for the reader, and there are extensive quotations, with translations, throughout. The result is a thorough exploration of Latin Arthurian narrative in the foundational period for the Arthurian tradition. Seller Inventory # APC9780521621267
