Garner Secondary Sources

It is quite difficult to know where to start or stop on a list of “secondary” sources: are they things we assume or know that Alan Garner has accessed, or things that have enabled us to dig deeper into his thinking?  In the end this very short list (roughly styled to Harvard, but not in detail) is merely indicative of the kind of things he or we have looked at; it is not an attempt to reconstruct someone’s library, although in creating this list I was conscious of the work of medievalists who have done such things, and conscious of my own huge gaps in knowledge.
