Arthurian Literature

Celtic Literature Medieval Literature Pre-Galfidian Gildas Nennius Geoffrey of Monthmouth Robert Wace Chretien de Troyes Robert de Boron Thomas Malory Mabinogion Vulgate Cycle Alfred Tennyson JRR Tolkein

Arthurian Literature has taken the ancient legends from the

Pre-Galfridian Traditions

from the distant past and from the famous pens of

Gildas,

Nennius,

Geoffrey of Monmouth,

Robert Wace,

Chrétien de Troyes,

Robert de Boron

and

Thomas Malory,

and placed them in new stories and poems of Arthurian Literature about King Arthur for a new audience.

The Mabinogion is a collection of prose stories taken from medieval Welsh manuscripts which draw upon Celtic mythology infused with both pre-Christian and early Christian themes in Arthurian Literature.

 

The Vulgate Cycle is an ancient collection of Christian stories about King Arthur written from between 1210 and 1240.

Chretien De Troyes

In our Introduction we describe this long process of Arthurian Literature and oral storytelling, from early writers such as the priest Geoffrey of Monmouth until today.

 

Alfred Tennyson

resurrected some of the great Arthurian legends from several centuries of literary neglect, and placed the person of Arthur firmly in the literature, imagination and morals of the Victorians.

 

More writers followed, and later J.R.R. Tolkien brought about another Arthurian revival after the Second World War, with his monumental trilogy: The Lord of the Rings.

The Sword in the Stone

Arthurian legends will continue to inspire our literature -and us- into the future.

 

As Tolkien himself said: The road goes ever onward.

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table

The web site, by Professor Deborah Vess, provides an interesting range of links to Arthurian literature and historical records from the late Roman period through to the 16th Century. It is aimed particularly at students, but is well worth investigating by everyone.
