About this book

Medievalists are increasingly grappling with spatial studies. This timely book argues that geography is a crucial element in Sir Thomas Malory's M orte Darthur and contributors shine a light on questions of politics and genre to help readers better understand Malory's world.

Reviews

"By tracking the complex ways that questions of space and geography inform Le Morte Darthur, Dorsey Armstrong and Kenneth Hodges have generated a striking reassessment of Malory's great work. Gracefully written, amply researched, and persuasively argued, Mapping Malory: Regional Identities and National Geographies in Le Morte Darthur should be on the reading list of anyone seeking a fuller understanding of Arthurian literature." - Kathy Lavezzo, Associate Professor of English, The University of Iowa, USA

"Through exemplary collaboration, Dorsey Armstrong and Kenneth Hodges become the first critics effectively to describe Malorian geography, an archipelagic space mapped between ambitious Arthurian centralizing and complexly hybrid localisms. Original, sophisticated, refreshing, and highly recommended." - David Wallace, Judith Rodin Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, USA, and author of Premodern Places: Calais to Surinam, Chaucer to Aphra Behn
