Abstract

Reviews of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword criticized it as an adaptation in class-evocative terms via discussion of tone, historical accuracy, and dialect. This essay examines these criticisms to explore how investment in Arthurian medievalism entails an imagination of history that reflects modern desires for class and class performance.
