From the Publisher
Annotation Women readers of Arthurian legend have long responded to the depictions of women therein: the passionate Guenevere, the plotting Morgan Le Fay, the mysterious Lady of the Lake. This volume collects various aspects of this response, including critical analyses, investigations of reception from the middle ages through the 20th century, and discussions of the creative interpretations of female Arthuriana produced by modern women.
