 Death of the Corn King: King and Goddess in Rosemary Sutcliff's Historical Fiction for Young Adults. - book reviews ...
That Sutcliff, an imaginative writer, should have used Frazer and Graves is one thing; that Talcroft, as literary critic, seems unable to get beyond these constructs has implications for the direction of this study.
Talcroft notes the frequency of Sutcliff's use of these themes in Celtic settings and ascribes it to the fact that primitive beliefs persisted longer in Celtic societies where they were not touched by Roman civilisation.
As an analysis of Rosemary Sutcliff's work, this study demonstrates how, through the use of these romantic mythic themes, Sutcliff creates a world in which history forms a continuous thread from ancient past to an unknown future.

 The SF Site Featured Review: The Lantern Bearers
At 14, Rosemary Sutcliff attended the Bideford Art School where she specialized in the painting of miniatures.
Sutcliff's style, pacing, and characterization are head and shoulders above much of what passes for young adult fiction these days.
The Arthurian theme was one of Sutcliff's favorites: she produced several young adult books on the subject, as well as a beautiful adult novel, Sword at Sunset, to my mind one of the best ever written in this genre.

 The Lantern Bearers--Rosemary Sutcliff
I discovered Rosemary Sutcliff in my early teens, and she quickly became one of my favorite authors.
Sutcliff possesses a unique gift for character and description, evoking a sense of place and person so intense that the reader can almost see her characters and the world in which they move.
But the Sutcliff's Arthur is rooted as much in history as in myth--not just the tragic king of Le Morte d’Arthur or the heroic/magical figure of traditional Arthurian fantasy, but a man who might actually have existed, heir both to the memory of Rome and to the last great flowering of Celtic power in Britain.
