Full text not available from this repository.


Like its precursor over twenty years ago, this New Companion to Malory is a testament both to the enduring popularity of its subject matter, and to the continuing evolution of scholarly debate about, and ways of reading, Malory’s Arthuriad. The 1996 A Companion to Malory, edited by Elizabeth Archibald and A. S. G. Edwards, has proved a valuable and influential guide to the study of Malory’s Morte Darthur. However, the two decades since its publication have seen a transformation and expansion of critical approaches to Malory, as well as significant advances in understanding the Morte Darthur’s milieux – textual, literary, cultural, and historical. Malory is now canonical and widely taught, and this New Companion provides an up-to-date guide to match Malory’s centrality to the university curriculum and to critical discourse. The recent publication of P. J. C. Field’s two-volume critical edition of the Morte Darthur (D. S. Brewer, 2013), about which little has yet been said in print but which is changing the way in which Malory scholarship is conducted, offers an additional stimulus for the current volume. This Companion offers scholars, teachers and students of the Morte Darthur a new series of essays from established and emerging experts in the field, together providing a synthetic overview of, and fresh perspectives on, the range of questions and contexts essential for upper-level undergraduates or new postgraduates studying Malory.
