1 - 2 weeks availability


The legend of King Arthur has embedded itself in British and American culture. Twentieth century and contemporary America, in particular, has proved to be a rich breeding ground for the Arthurian mythos, not only in films, novels, short stories, and fantasy and science fiction, but in other areas of popular and mass culture as well. This work is a collection of 19 previously unpublished essays by the authors that demonstrate the great extent to which the Arthurian legend continues to permeate contemporary culture beyond film and literature. The essays cover the Arthurian legend in economics, ethics, education, entertainment, music, fun and games, the Internet, and esoterica.
