short description for each. This entry offers the reader a general rating of which books would be
right for which people and which were more popular.
This article is an excellent source for a simple summary and recommendations for
Bradleys books. It is easy to read and understand as well as to the point. There is no need to
wade through unneeded information to decide which of her books to read.

Ostman, Heather. "The Mists of Avalon." In Werlock, Abby H. P., ed. The Facts On File
Companion to the American Novel. New York: Facts On File, Inc., 2006. Bloom's Literature.
Facts On File, Inc. Web. 13 Nov. 2014

This source is an excellent and precise summary of the plot and characters of The Mists
of Avalon. Every character, subplot and conflict is explained and dissected. A bit of a heavier
read.
Although it is an excellent summary, it is just that: a summary. If you plan on reading the
book, this article is not the best one to read as it gives away all the twists and turns of the story. If
you were simply looking for a good plot and character summary of this entire book, then this
would be a good article to read.

As one might tell from the title, this article focuses a good percentage on
Bradleys influence on feminism and such related topics. However, it also tells
some of the activities and hobbies of Bradley, letting the reader take a look
into the actual person instead of just the events of her life.
The reader is provided with a more interesting summary of the life of Bradley
than what might be expected with the usual biography. The article reads more

to find out about the person and anyone particularly interested in womens
rights and such.
