This is a pretty useful overview of the Arthurian tradition -- more of a description of what people have done with it over the years, and where things have come from, than an analysis of why. Some illuminating comments, though. I found the reproductions of Arthurian artwork most fascinating, really, particularly the full colour ones -- it's amazing to see how different people have pictured Arthur and his court over the centuries.
