This book explores the political and intellectual ideology of the British Arthurian tradition, particularly the delineation of the figure of Arthur as a cultural icon. Spenserian's have tended to isolate The Faerie Queene from the Arthurian tradition. This book re-reads that tradition, revealing notions of histobiography, national identity, and national destiny which are powerfully present in Spenser's great Tudor epic and contrapuntally in his "A View to the Present State of England."
