Morgan's Children: Sex and Power

Abstract [en]

Many contemporary text reinterpret the ambiguous character of Morgan le Fay. However, whether they cast her as an evil enemy or as misunderstood martyr, a surprising number of contemporary depictions share one element: they change the traditional number and/or the identity of Morgan’s children. Mordred is depicted as her son, rather than Morgawse’s, and there are often other sons and daughters. Morgan’s children may be her allies or adversaries, or symbols of her feminity and sexuality: the texts differ in their approaches. In this paper; I discuss the various uses made of the portrayal of Morgan as mother in texts by Bradley, Sampson, Lawhead, and others.
