Abstract

In the argument over the unity of Malory's Arthuriad, "Gareth" is cited by Vinaver as an illustration of the separateness of the eight tales, for it is a uniquely aloof, self-contained, and self-consistent unit within Le Morte Drthur. "Gareth" is skillfully managed with scrupulous regard for structural balance and the cumulative effect of its narrative episodes.
