Lancelot

Edwin Arlington Robinson

"The beautiful, elegant, hearbreakingly sad story of Lancelot, Guinevere and Arthur is Ediwn Arlington Robinson's subject in his 1920 novella in verse, ""Lancelot."" His focus throughout is is on one side of the triangle, that of Lancelot and Guinevere. As in his previous Arthurian poem, ""Merlin,"" he does not give us Malory's tales of jousts and tournaments; he sets his poem instead in the quiet moments of reflection, hope, anger, forgiveness, remorse and honesty that allow him to explore the meaning of this, one of literature's most enduring love stories, in the depths of the hearts and minds of his characters. Measured, elegiac, but always clear-eyed, he faces unflinchingly the agony of love that cannot be, and in so doing, breaks our hearts while satisfying our souls. "
