The story of Elaine, the lily maid of Astolat

First published in 1879



Excerpts

Two Elaines appear in the old collections of Arthurian legends. One, the daughter of King Pelles, was more like the " wily Vivien " than the " Lily Maid of Astolat," and we willingly dismiss her from our minds, only noting that she took part in a conspiracy to deceive Sir Lancelot, who, in consequence, went nearly mad for two years, and wandered away from the Court; and Guinevere, agitated by the contending passions of jealousy and .loving anxiety, banished Elaine (who as the result of the deception she had practised, became the mother of Sir Galahad) from her presence.
