Medieval Arthurian Literature with Kathy Cawsey and Elizabeth Edwards

For over a thousand years, people have been captivated by the tales of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. And each generation and culture has shaped the story of Arthur to meet their own aesthetic and political needs. This week, Danièle speaks with Kathy Cawsey and Elizabeth Edwards about the changing face of Arthur, the way his legend spread across the medieval world, and the ways in which storytellers adopted – and adapted – his myth.

Kathy Cawsey is an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Dalhousie University. Elizabeth Edwards is a Professor at the University of King’s College in Halifax. Their new book is The Broadview Anthology of Medieval Arthurian Literature
