  • Morgan le Fays career in medieval Arthurian romance moves from a connector of life with healing in the Vita Merlini into a connector of death with illicit sex and wrongful imprisonment in most subsequent works, and produces a more male-friendly variant in the Lady (Ladies) of the Lake climaxing for both figures in Malory's Morte Darthur revealing male Arthurian authors as increasingly unable to image powerful women in positive terms.
