Her purpose is to explain the social, political, religious and aesthetic conditions which influenced representations of Arthurian legends in various historical periods, and she has consulted a wide variety of sources to explain the legends' enduring attraction for artists from the middle ages to the Pre Raphaelites, and for patrons ranging from the Duc de Berry to the trustees of Boston Public Library.
