A slightly OT request:
I was teaching Sir Gawain and the Green Knight today (ObDWJ, her husband
has written criticism on the poem), and my class surprised me with an
upswelling of interest in all things Arthurian. I said I would give them
some recommendations for further reading, both medieval and modern. What I
want to ask you, the list, is whether those books by Bernard Cornwell are
any good. I ask because they seem to be so readily available. I was going
to suggest TH White, Mary Stewart, and of course Mists of Avalon for modern
retellings, and Susan Cooper and Robertson Davies as people who use the
legend without actually retelling. Any other suggestions?
