Wace (1155) Norman French writer - speaks of noble love - first to mention the round table - first to mention the Briton Hope o this is the belief that after Arthur goes to the island of Avalon he will return to Briton to rule when they need him, Wace describes this as the Norman conquerors - not interested in church history as Geoffrey was - eliminates the brutal Arthur and creates a more peaceful honorable Arthur - the history content is very abridged up to the Arthur story which then becomes verbatim - the difference in his story compared to Geoffrey could be do to other manuscripts he possessed or possibly Norman folk law - much more knowledge in geography then Geoffrey was - shows definite dates based on Haley’s Comet sighting - more dialog and interaction between characters ROMAN de BRUT - the story starts with the assumption you know what has happened up to this point and Wace then says he fears explaining Merlin’s prophecies due to their complexity - The Easter feast comes where Uther meets Igerna and begins to covet her.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
