Extractions: Explorations in Arthurian Legends A Literature Review Part 1: Chretien de Troyes Previous discussions have focused on writers who have attempted to portray Arthur as historical in nature. We have seen that no matter how hard these writers try, they cannot help but invent conventions because they have so little to go on. Still, their Arthur was a figure of history whose deeds could be rooted in things that actually happened and places that could conceivably be identified. Geoffrey of Monmouth started the fiction ball rolling with his History of the Kings of Briton, which introduced many fanciful notions, including the idea that Britain had never been conquered by the Romans. Wace introduced the idea of courtly love. It was up to his fellow Frenchmen to elaborate on this theme. We start with the towering giant, Chretien de Troyes. We have seen that earlier tales of Arthur drew on Welsh tales and the events of the times of the writers to portray Arthur differently. Geoffrey of Monmouth has given us the begetting and birth of Arthur at Tintagel and Arthur's marriage to Guinevere (though he calls her Ganhumara). Wace has given us the

Chapter Quicklink What's the Buzz Escape Hatch: Open Mic The term prehistoric art usually refers to artistic traditions produced by early non-literate peoples, and usually refers to art produced on rock surfaces. Although rock art traditions vary around the world, most include images carved, engraved, or painted on the walls of caves or on open-air rocky outcroppings. In addition to rock art, many prehistoric artists used the media of wood, bone, leather, ivory, and eggshell. The sculpting of human and animal figures from ivory, bone, clay, and stone was also an integral part of prehistoric art tradition.

Extractions: July 30 Lionel was sitting at the breakfast table, listening to his grandsons and great niece chat about their adventures last night. Martha and Anne were making breakfast, having told the cook to take the morning off. Jonathan sat down near Lionel and saw the headlines on the paper he was holding. Rubbing the bridge of his nose, Jon sighed. Has Lex seen this? Lionel sipped his coffee before responding. Not that I am aware of, but he will. The trio walked in looking refreshed. And it will not be a welcome wake up, either. Lex was immediately accosted by two of his sons, one of whom ended up in his arms, but that didn't prevent him from noticing Lionel and Jonathan whispering. He could tell something was wrong. Cocking an eyebrow, Lex asked, What? Spill it. What's going on? Lionel turned the paper so that he could see the headline: Lex reached for the paper, scanning Lois Lane's account of the inextricably-bound press conference and his surprise announcement at the Gala. The next article was a profile of the Luthor family, and a final piece on the front page referred to other articles in the paper. The front page of the business section had a biography of Tristan that detailed his career or rather, the portion of it that was public knowledge. The paper's crowning achievement, though, was an Op Ed piece that sermonized on the dangers of too much wealth controlling too much power without mentioning the words Lex or Luthor even once. The implication, however, was crystal clear.

Extractions: Old Testament Life and Literature (1968) Gerald Larue ABOUT thirty years are embraced in the period which we are labeling for convenience "The Middle Period" of the Exile and which extends roughly from about 585 to 555. During these years a considerable body of literature was produced by the exiles: new additions were made to the prophetic oracles, the Deuteronomic history was brought to a close, the initial stages of the editing of the P source were undertaken and, if our dating is correct, the magnificent Wisdom writing which wrestles with the problem of theodicy, the book of Job, was composed. In its present form, the book of Job records the sad adventures of a good and righteous man, stricken by God, and comforted by friends whose comments set forth the attitudes toward sin, suffering, righteousness and divine justice which were current in the writer's day. The prose prologue introduces the reader to Job, presenting him as one whose every act was kind, good and just, as a man of faith whose blamelessness and righteousness were affirmed by God. Indeed, it was God's boast of Job's upright behavior that prompted "the Satan," a member of the court of heaven
