Celte ou Romain, chef de bande ou Roi du Sacrifice, l’identité d’Arthur se décline dans los angeles multiplicité, faisant de los angeles Matière de Bretagne, sans cesse renouvelée, une littérature vivante, populaire, able de témoigner aussi bien de l. a. nostalgie d’un âge d’or que des grandes angoisses de notre temps. Et si, loin d’appauvrir los angeles légende, los angeles nouvelle Matière de Bretagne, par son souci extrême d’historicité et sa thématique en part avec les grandes créations littéraires et cinématographiques du présent, ne faisait que retrouver son rôle d’origine, opérer cette « sortie du temps » qui nous soustrait au quotidien et nous plonge dans le temps du mythe ?
