Firefly Arthuriana

A quick bleg -- has anyone written about Arthuriana in Firefly? I had a student ask me today about Arthurian allusions in Firefly, and I couldn't remember any off the mere 16-or-so episodes, but maybe others have written about it.

  1. Way lat on this...but I don't think so. I'd say though that they are more general "arthuriana" than "arthurian."

    My young teen just started a rewatching session, and I asked her to keep an eye out, but nothing has struck her yet. I don't recall anything in particular and haven't stumbled across anything written on it. Did your student or anyone else come up with anything?

  4. I don't know of any writing about Arthuriana in Firefly; and, though I've been re-watching it all recently, and tend to be very alert to mediaevalism in my recreational viewing/reading, nothing's struck me as particularly Arthurian, certainly not as deliberate allusions. You could spin an elaborate metaphor on it, I'm sure - Inara balancing the different traditions of Guenevere? the Alliance/Reavers as the invaders? - but it would be a stretch, and you could do it as well with Old Testament figures, or any other canon with influential symbolic weight to it.
