    De Gruyter 2003; US$ 140.00

    De Gruyter 1999; US$ 140.00

    The apparently vague and certainly hackneyed term 'structure' has become a terminally ubiquitous 'hardly perennial' in the research on Arthurian romance in verse and prose. Unlike orally derived epic poetry, early Arthurian romance already evolved an identity as an individually under-written, authorial, consciously fictional, and - in... more...
