   Cumulative Index for Supplements to the New Arthurian Encyclopedia

An Arthurian Bestiary by Kara L. McShane

Creatures mythical and ordinary appear in medieval Arthurian literature.  Knights fight dragons and wild boars; dogs reveal the true identities of their masters; and knights are not knights without their horses.  Animals also feature in prophesies, predicting Arthur's victories and providing insight about events that have just transpired.  Recent criticism has sought to study animals in their medieval context, providing new insight into the role that animals played in medieval life and thus in medieval literature.  This Bestiary is an important step in that work; it documents major appearances of these creatures and identifies patterns in how they are presented in a range of major Arthurian materials.
