...Arthurian legend, “Mothers seem to appear only to disappear in Grail romances” as Peggy Mc Cracken puts it. The literature is taken up by instances when the role of the mothers disappears without leaving any impact on the quest.

The case would have been different if the dearth of women had left some affect on the lives of the knights or their quests for that matter; however they were of no value. However, when fathers were not present in the scene it led... s School Women in...
