From this notable and engaging study we learn that the education of the Arthurian hero is a romance motif as significant to the hero's exploits as his beseiged damsel or his fierce joust. Accounts of the births and childhoods of religious and mythical protagonists at once prefigure and explaining their later powers.

Originally published in 1966.
