« Céline est un grand écrivain, mais ce n'est pas un écrivain comme les autres. Il m'arrive aujourd'hui encore, en lisant un des "contre-Céline" qui se publient périodiquement, de me demander remark j'ai pu consacrer tant d'années à éditer et à explorer l'œuvre d'un auteur aussi controversé et, en effet, aussi problématique... »

Some criticism is implied in the De Ortu Waluuanii or Rise of Gawain, a twelfth- or thirteenth-century account of Gawain as a Fair Unknown, and in the Arthurian episode in Andreas Capellanus’ treatise on love (late twelfth century). The introduction of the Grail into the Arthurian world challenges existing values and behaviour: Lancelot is found wanting, whereas his illegitimate son Galahad proves to be a perfect Christian knight, too good for the world. Gawain does particularly badly on the Grail quest, but England showed little interest in Grail adventures until the later fifteenth century, and Gawain remained extremely popular there .
McCracken considers the difference between the king’s body and the queen’s, compares the French account of Arthur’s philandering with episodes in Scott’s Bride of Triermain and Tennyson’s Idylls of the King, and concludes that the real danger in Arthur’s affairs is that the objects of his desire prove treacherous . Some of Arthur’s lovers use magic in seducing the king, and magic is a fundamental part of the Arthurian legend. Merlin facilitates Arthur’s conception, and his claim to the throne is based on being the only person who can draw out a sword mysteriously lodged in a stone.
8 It is possible that exactly the same happened to the early Arthurian legend. Proponents of a historical Arthur have at times stretched the evidence by taking as proven the earliest possible date for the sources that appear to represent one; conversely, Thomas Green rests much of his case for a mythological hero on assuming the earliest possible date for texts that seem to display such a figure. The arguments made by him and Oliver Padel are, however, as cogent as those for a genuine military leader, and, even if they are wrong, have served two valuable purposes.
