What's ?
IN THE ARTHURIAN COLLECTION


Fall 2008
Welcome back! Yes, it's been some time since my last update. Well, not exactly. I have been sneaking in and out to update several pages, but without announcing it. Especially the articles by August Hunt have received rseveral additions and updates (that's the advantage of internet publishing: if you change your views, you can alter your articles!) in March/April and September/October.
New in the Arthurian Collection:
One
novel by Sarah Zettel (I really must get the other two parts in this series!) and four children's Books, one by Philip Reeve (a nice historian novel), two by Kevin Crossley-Holland, and a brilliantly-illustrated new work by John Matthews: Arthur of Albion. I've also got the chance to interview him (look here for the result), plus a review of the book here.

Finally, it has taken me long enough. After about 4 years after starting this first of my websites, I finally came to doing something about the still disappointing layout. 'Faces of Arthur' reflects the new integrated concept of the Collection and Arthurian articles. Furthermore, it also reflects the essence of the Collection, namely Arthur in all his different guises, written down by as many authors.

I've added the Arthurian articles (mostly) by August Hunt as a second part of this site and intergrated the book about History of Britain, 407-597 by Fabio Barbarbieri as a third. Both parts provide a challenging new line of thought towards the studies of the so-called 'Arthurian period'.
New
in the Arthurian Collection for January:

  • no new items.

September 2, 2002
A few new books:

  • A Children's Book: Crossley-Holland, Kevin: Arthur 2 - In het Tussenland, (Lemniscaat 2002). A Dutch translation of the sequel to the already well-known first part.
  • A Novel: Miles, Rosalind: Isolde - Queen of the Western Isle, (Pocket Books 2002). Not a sequel to the trilogy, but a separate book.
  • A Classical Text: Rawie, Jean-Pierra and Driek van Wissen: De Korte Mantel- Een Arthurverhaal uit de dertiende eeuw, (Bert Bakker 2001). A Dutch translation of a Medieval French tale.

A new chapter in the history of this site; in its fourth season, the Arthurian Collection has become a full part of Vortigern Studies, with its own Sitemap, Whatsnew, Links and Search pages.
In time, this Arthurian part of Vortigern Studies will move away from simply being a collection, and incorporate aritcles about Arthurian subjects as well.
Also, I will start adding reviews of all the books presently in the Collection.
