Re: Spoilers for Mists of Avalon

The thing is that most of your specifics are stuff that comes up over and over in Arthur retellings because of the way the 'canon' works and the way people in different times attempt to make sense of it - I think all of that but the pitiful Gwen is more or less in Firelord, for example (which actually, to my shock, predates Mists of Avalon.) A lot of it's in Sutcliff, too.

Maybe I should just assume that nearly everything that's considered groundbreaking in Bradley was already out there in other stuff I've already read and don't need to read it.

Of course, knowing what we know about Bradley, the rape and incest and grooming and so on seems waaay creepier and not just someone playing with the canon.
