Merlin And Legendary Romance from the Author: Carol Harding. An indepth work on the origins of the Merlin of Arthurian legend, this book examines early texts, thirteenth century romances focusing particularly on Merlin as a character, rather than those where Merlin is a background cast member. The outline here starts with looking at the genre and the place of fantasy, moving on to consider the attitudes towards magic and magic-users in medieval times. Main works considered are Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae and Vita Merlini; the Vulgate cycle, Suite du Merlin; and finally Malory’s work. The author asserts that each portrays a different approach to Merlin but all are tied to history and to the Christian religion.

Merlin The Legend Begins 2 from the Author: R.A. Jones. Before there was King Arthur, Camelot, and the Knights of the Round Table, there was Merlin. In the year 410 A.D., a divided and decaying Rome calls the last of her occupying forces from the island of Britain. With the Roman legions gone, British warlords and foreign invaders alike begin to battle for control of the small isle. In the region known today as Wales, one warlord at last gains enough prominence to take the title “King”. His name is Vortigern. It is the tenth year of his reign, 435 A.D., and that is where our story begins... THIS ISSUE: “POET OF PAIN” – A young Merlin, while out on a hunt, comes face to face with a wild boar that leads to an unlikely outcome. His later premonition about a dangerous bridge is proven true when it collapses, killing two men. Now Vortigern’s men are beginning to wonder if Merlin is blessed by the hand of God...or something else.
