Helping Girls to Be Heroic?: Some Recent Arthurian Fiction for Young Adults
Abstract

Abstract:

Study of the female protagonists in several post-2000 novels for young adults reveals that Morris and Reeve provide healthy and flexible models of gender roles and gender identity. In contrast, McKenzie, Springer, and Wood provide restrictive and old-fashioned ones while Kemp presents a dangerously negative model of womanhood.
