Description

A roundtable discussion, moderated by Jan M. Ziolkowski, with Kathleen Forni, Anna Stavrakopoulou, and Anise K. Strong concerning the film The 13th Warrior (1999). A commercial flop, the film is of interest for its intersection of Old English literature and Arabic history. Its interest also lies in its employment of the old custom of portraying one alleged "other" with another (Antonio Banderas) and its depiction of language acquisition.
