Paralles between Ulysses and The Faerie Queene

James R. Kincaid, Aerol Arnold Professor of English, University of Southern California

Note 9 to Chapter 3 of the author's Tennyson's Major Poems, which Yale University Press published in 1975. It has been included in the Victorian Web with the kind permission of the author, who of course retains copyright.

The parallels between the argument oft Despair and that of the mariners, and some of
their implications, are discussed in an article of mine, "Tennyson's Mariners".
