The Arthurian Tradition on the Page and Screen

This class introduces a tradition–that of the Arthurian legend–from its beginnings in the Middle Ages through its resurgence in modern times. We will identify reasons for the enduring popularity of King Arthur and his entourage, but we will also take note of significant innovations introduced by modern revivalists. We will read from written texts of power and originality, but we will also study successful adaptations of the legend, and its pervasive presence in the general culture: Round Table Pizza, the Excalibur Hotel and Casino, Merlin’s Mufflers, and–in Kearney Nebraska–a street named Camelot Way
