Abstract

The treatment of the old legends by modern authors differs widely from that of Malory or Tennyson. It is my purpose to show the variation in this treatment by comparing the modern development with that of Tennyson and his contemporaries. It has not been possible to read all the books written on Arthurian legends because the available facilities are limited, but within these limits I have shown the characteristic trend of the modern treatment of the Arthurian legends in the literature of Great Britain and America
