The purpose is to argue for a particular reading or interpretation of a given text or passage. Your

paper should have an argumentative thesis, and you should seek to prove that thesis through

textual evidence, which is to say I want you to quote from the text, analyze those quotations

through close reading, and thereby argue for an interpretation of your chosen text.


Prompt: Compare and contrast the interpretations (or significance/role) of Merlin’s character within the two texts.


Primary texts:

Text #1: History of the Kings of Britain (Novel) by Geoffrey of Monmouth

Text #2: Vita Merlini (Poem) by Geoffrey of Monmouth

Some notes I’ve gathered from each text (May use if needed):



  • Amazed auditors with her ambiguous words, relating the darkest moments in British history
  • British prophet
  • Enters midpoint as a possible solution to the quandary of Vortigern’s collapsing fortress
  • Youth without a father whose blood will stabilize the fortress’s foundation
    • Tried to resolve the violent dialectic of family struggle by removing a family from the equation
  • More uncanny than merely a fatherless being
  • Hybrid of a spirit (supernatural figure of irresistible sexual desire or a royal nun)
  • Does not evade the conflicts of masculine desire and resistance the destabilize foundation in the text
    • Intensifies them, playing them out in a meta-historical key
  • Vortigern accepts his authority as a narrative informant
  • Acknowledges the human cost of British foundational violence
    • Literary meditation on the larger dialectics of British history renders the violence magnificent, monstrous, even pleasurable
  • Geoffrey’s acknowledgment that there is no solution to the problem of human transience
  • Allows Geoffrey to dramatize the problem in a narrative vein that distances it from what is tragic and pathetic
  • Presents Britain as a coveted object of desire, a treasure to be possessed, and a living palimpsest on which Kings inscribe their deeds



  • Explorer of the fecund British landscape
  • 12 years later
  • Watched the stars as routinely as a modern businessman would watch the nightly news
  • Prophesies compulsively not to Kings in portentous circumstances but to anyone in earshot
  • Enters in the beginning and is neither the fatherless child nor hybrid of desire and constraint
  • Becomes very antisocial after the death of his 3 companions, which causes him to lose the desire to connect emotionally with any human being
    • Addresses the creatures of the woods as his dear companions, identifying most closely with the wolf
  • After he is partially healed, he returned to society, not sociality
    • Coldly addressed his wife/sister
    • Love, desire, the capacity to connect to other humans had become too costly to sustain
  • During his first healing, he is depicted as a prophet whose insights serve neither Kings are God
  • Insights disenchant human relations, revealing them to be hypocritical and futile (emphasis on his 3 laughs)
  • Society torments human with its betrayal, foolishness, and need; sociopathic laughter is all her can muster
  • Incident communicates the force of his masculinity and broader enmity against ongoing social relations
  • Only comforted by the return to the woods – highlights the absence of social relations
  • Exhibits a fascination with Britain’s natural world as an exquisite structure and a marvelous creation of God’s deputy, Nature
