MEDIA REVIEWS

"Drayson's study contributes fresh insights into the existing scholarship on the subject. The first three chapters of her study, in particular, provide an invaluable resource on the background of the 'King Roderick and La Cava' legend, as Drayson painstakingly and comprehensively differentiated between history and legend, and with great clarity documents the differernt directions the legent takes early in its existence . . . a worthwhile and engaging study." - Sixteenth-Century Journal
