Also, the author has some problematic phrasing about primitive and lower races throughout, When I pick up a book of mythology, I really want it to just be a retelling of the myths/5.

    Chrétien de Troyes, commonly regarded as the father of Arthurian romance and a key figure in Western literature, composed in French in the latter part of the twelfth century. Virtually nothing is known of his life/5.   In , Roger Sherman Loomis published “Celtic Myth and Arthurian Romance”, which attempted to systematically trace the tales of Arthur back to their origins in Celtic mythology. Having read “Morte d’Arthur” and “The Mabinogion” before coming to it, I found Loomis’s book was the key that unlocked their meanings.

    The generally accepted theory now is that Arthurian legend developed out of stories of Celtic mythology. The most archaic form in which these occur in British sources is the Welsh Mabinogion, but much of Irish mythology is palpably identical with Arthurian romance. The 12th-century French writer Chrétien de Troyes, who added Lancelot and the Holy Grail to the story, began the genre of Arthurian romance that became a significant strand of medieval literature. In these French stories, the narrative focus often shifts from King Arthur himself to other characters, such as various Knights of the Round Table.
