A Dictionary of Medieval Heroes
Characters in Medieval Narrative Traditions and Their Afterlife in Literature, Theatre, and the Visual ArtsBook - 1998
This is a treasury of medieval tales about great heroes of that time. Some are familiar, like Arthur and his knights, or Tristan and Isolde, but there are many other lesser-known but equally fascinating stories to be found here. They range from medieval versions of the exploits of Charlemagne and Aeneas to the parody of heroism in Reynard the Fox. Cu Cuchulainn and other Celtic heroes are represented, as well as romances from the Greek world such as Apollonius of Tyre, and the half-historical sagas of Attila the Hun and Theodore the Ostrogoth.
