      Adapting the Arthurian Legends for Children: Essays on Arthurian Juvenilia
      Ed. Barbara Tepa Lupack
      Studies in Arthurian and Courtly Culture. Series ed. Bonnie Wheeler
      Palgrave Macmillan, 2004
      ISBN 1-4039-6296-0
      Hc. 344 pp.

      For centuries, the Arthurian legends have fascinated and inspired countless
      writers, artists, and readers, many of whom first became acquainted with the
      story as youngsters. From the numerous retellings of Malory and versions of
      Tennyson for young people to the host of illustrated volumes to which the
      Arthurian Revival gave rise, from the Arthurian youth groups for boys (and
      eventually for girls) run by schools and churches to the school operas,
      theater pieces, and other entertainment for younger
      audiences, from the Arthurian juvenile fiction sequences and series to the
      films and television shows featuring Arthurian characters, children have
      learned about the world of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
