An Arthurian Dictionary.
Moorman, Charles; Moorman, Ruth
Intended as a reference manual for students, this dictionary lists the characters, places, and topics connected with the legend of King Arthur from its first written appearances through Sir Thomas Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur." The entries are generally limited to Celtic, French, German, and English materials and include characters and places that appear in more than one work or are important to the legend. However, the dictionary does provide a key to some of the less eminent figures and locations in the Arthurian legends. The introduction offers a sketch of the development of the Arthur story, and the bibliography lists the general commentaries, all of which are standard authorities, that served as the major sources for this volume.
