Abstract
This essay explores the ways in which dwarfs and porters are sources of\ud information, and often, more specifically, of ethical advice and/or judgement. As masculine,\ud non-chivalric servants, dwarfs and porters are important to Arthurian epistemology—to what\ud and how Arthurian knights, and readers of Arthurian romances, know—and not always in a\ud comfortable way.
