Idylls of the King was written a little at a time but can be taken as a whole.. Balan and Balin presents us with the tale of Balin's madness taken full form: When Balan sets out on a quest to kill a woods demon, Balin stays behind to better himself at court. His fits of madness disappear, but a chance observation of Lancelot and Guinevere being unfaithful sends him into a mad fit of rage.   Text of poem 'The Passing of Arthur' from 'Illustrations to Tennyson's Idylls of the King and Other Poems', vol. 2, illustrated with photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron.
