About This Item
The Idylls of a King was published between 1859 and 1885 as a collection of 12 narrative poems by the English Poet, Lord Alfred Tennson. The collection regales the legend of King Arthur and his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthur's kingdom. The whole work recounts Arthur's attempt and failure to lift up mankind and create a perfect kingdom, from his coming to power to his death at the hands of the traitor Mordred. Individual poems detail the deeds of various knights, including Lancelot, Geraint, Galahad, and Balin and Balan, and also Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The poems were dedicated to the late Prince Consort Albert. The Idylls are written in blank verse.
