Jean Markale, King of the Celts: Arthurian Legends and Celtic Tradition

“When… Arthur loses the power to give, his court disintegrates and his kingdom hangs in the balance. Only the restoration of his ability to give makes him leader of the community again.” – Jean Markale, King of the Celts: Arthurian Legends and Celtic Tradition
“The kingdom of the Grail, for example, becomes the Gaste Pays, a barren wasteland, when the Fisher-King was wounded for transgressing a geis and could no longer govern properly.” – Jean Markale, King of the Celts: Arthurian Legends and Celtic Tradition
