Page: 238

The study of the Arthurian legend in the 1600s has revealed almost no romance; the stories are more about the truth of Arthur’s existence and his exploits, with influence due to political bearing of the royalty versus parliament at the time. This fascinating study elucidates the differences between the stories of the seventeenth century and those more well-known now and looks at the development of the literature in line with the political climate and its links with Arthurian prophecy and lineage. Originally published 1932 and again in 1967.
