Description

This panel seeks papers on the “lesser,” or lesser-studied, Arthurian texts. Some of these texts are less well-studied because they are considered “bad” literature, and some for other reasons, like their difficult dialects. How might a renewed discussion of such texts’ place in our research and teaching contribute to a deeper understanding of the aesthetic diversity of the Arthurian canon and the Middle Ages more generally? How might they help us to re-think and re-frame the “canonical” Arthurian texts on which we often focus? Usha Vishnuvajjala
