Spenser, Milton, and the Renaissance Arthur

Lecture no. 19 from the course: King Arthur: History and Legend

Spenser, Milton, and the Renaissance Arthur

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

In a relatively sparse era of Arthurian literary output, trace noteworthy currents of the saga in Spenser, Milton, and the work of Renaissance historians. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, note the rise of Arthur’s presence in popular ballads, songs, and poetry, and his remarkable portrayal on the stage in English and Cornish.
