About the Author:

Norma Lorre Goodrich, Ph.D., K.C., FSA Scot, has been teaching for forty-five years and is a professor emeritus at the Claremont Colleges. She is the author of King Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin, Heroines, Priestesses, Ancient Myths, and Medieval Myths. She lives in Claremont, California, with her husband.

From Library Journal:

Goodrich identifies Merlin with the St. Dubricius who controlled vast lands in 6th-century Wales and founded a monastic university. She has freshly translated from the Latin Geoffrey of Monmouth's "Merlin's Prophecy" and interpreted its veiled phrases as a history of King Arthur's wars. The maps, chronologies, and bibliographical annotations are illuminating, but the text resembles notes rather than a thoroughly digested work. Those not put off by Goodrich's mixture of naivete and breathless scholarship, and who liked her King Arthur ( LJ 2/1/86), may be able to appreciate it. General readers are better advised to start with Nikolai Tolstoi's The Quest for Merlin ( LJ 8/85) or the various Arthurian books by Geoffrey Ashe. Barbara J. Dunlap, City Coll. Lib., CUNY
