About this item

Dixon, an English literature scholar from the UK, examines the conflict between the concept of the Goddess and the Holy Grail, focusing on the last two great cycles about the Grail Quest, the Vulgate and the Post-Vulgate, to analyze the contrasts between them and the tension between their concepts of Britain: the concept of Britain as the Promised Land of the Goddess, established by the early Arthurian chroniclers Geoffrey of Monmouth and Wace, shown in the Vulgate Cycle through powerful women endowed with supernatural powers, such as the Lady of the Lake and Morgan the Fay, or of supernatural origin, such as Guenevere, and the second concept of Britain as the Promised Land of the Grail, through the process of demonization of Faerie and women in general, as the Grail Quest is one in which only chaste men can succeed. He draws on the poetry of William Blake, the philosophy of Henry Corbin, and the work of others, such as scholars of the Eranos conferences, like Carl Jung, Heinrich Zimmer, Carl Kerényi, Mircea Eliade, and James Hillman.
