This major reference work is the fourth volume in the series Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages. Principally focused on the production, dissemination, and evolution of Arthurian material from the twelfth to fifth centuries, this volume covers writing in both verse and prose, and addresses such classics as the Tristan legend, the Vulgate Cycle, and the Grail Continuations.
