Btw, if anyone doubted it, that story about the Loathly Lady, more typically
starring Sir Gawain, is definitely out there in the early literature. I
read it as a kid in Bulfinch's MYTHOLOGY,
and Roger Lancelyn Green, friend of CSL, retells it in his own kids' version
(and a good one it was) of the Arthurian tales.
In fact, it's the tale Chaucer gives to the Wife of Bath, though with a
slightly different ending.
