some namespacing.
Alfred Lord Tennyson's verse narrative ''Idylls of the King'' is inspired by [[KingArthur Arthurian legends]], especially Thomas Malory's ''Literature/LeMorteDarthur''; however, it also draws extensively on the ''{{Mabinogion}}'' and French traditions. The complete ''Idylls'' consists of 12 poems, plus a dedication to the deceased Prince Albert and an epilogue addressed to [[UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria Queen Victoria]]. Tennyson, a longtime enthusiast of the Arthurian tales, worked on the collection for decades: the first four poems appeared in 1859, and the last one in 1885. (In book form, the poems are not in order of writing or publication.)

Added DiffLines:
* LawfulStupid: As usual, Arthur, who keeps failing TameHisAnger: "Balin and Balan" subverts this trope. Balin does his best, but once he's separated from Balan and begins to notice doubt Guinevere, his self-control evaporates. * TheDividual: Balin and Balan, of the real state syndividual type. Balan is capable of affairs between restraining Balin's anger issues. Then, they split up. * TriangRelations: Type 12, although platonic on the male ends. Arthur loves Guinevere and Lancelot.

* HeroicVow SlapSlapKiss: Lynette spends most of "Gareth and Lynette" trying to provoke Gareth, whom she believes to be base-born, until she changes her mind near the end.
