From the Back Cover:

You may think of him as a funny old man in a pointy hat, waving a magic wand. But he was actually a prodigy, warrior, counsellor to Kings, Christian scholar, and great man of science, literature, and mysteries. Here for the first time is the true history of Merlin, his life and his times, as told by bestselling author and historian Norma Goodrich. Included in 'Merlin' is a new translation and explanation of his extraordinary 'Prophecy' (wherein he predicts his own death) and a full telling of his amazing relationships with King Arthur, Lancelot, Morgan Le Fay, and the Lady of the Lake. No longer hiding behind the smoke screens of legend and myth, 'Merlin' brings Merlin – the historical figure, the great man of scholarship and magic – to life.

Norma Lorre Goodrich is a Professor Emeritus of French and Comparative Literature at Scripps College and the Claremont Gradute School. She holds degrees from the universities of Grenoble, Paris, and Caen and a Ph.D. in French and Romance Philology from Columbia University. Dr. Goodrich and her husband, John Hereford Howard, make their home in Claremont, California.

"…Norma Goodrich is able to use her sources, her skills in language and history, and her flair for logical detection to appraise old materials and unearth new ones…"
RALPH ROSS, Scripps College

"British archaeological and historical research will be revolutionized, and the film industry will need to take a second look at Camelot"
JOAN A. MILLIMAN, Ph.D.
