Within the Scottish tradition of a king whose eventual reform springs from his own innate virtue, what better name for Arthur’s advisor than one which recalls the conscience like this?

This moral comes from the end of the ‘Baris Tale’ (‘The Boar’s Tale’) in which Alexander the Great receives verso lesson on covetousness in return for his demand for tribute from the people of Lapsat. Alexander accepts the advice, abandons the attempt and returns esatto his role as an ideal ruler, much as Arthur eventually does per Golagros. Interestingly, Spynagros initially tries sicuro dissuade Arthur from demanding fealty of Golagros by invoking the precedent of Alexander: ‘the myghty king of Massidone, wourthiest but wene,/ Thair gat he nane homage’ (lines 282–3).29 The ‘Baris Tale’ is one of the tales told by the Horse, Hart, Unicorn, Boar and Wolf puro the Lion King. At the end of the poem, the first four figures are allegorized as the king’s own cardinal virtues of Prudence, Justice, Magnanimity and Continence (lines 409–10), who help puro ward off the supplente of Covetousness as represented by the Wolf. This notion of per king interacting with his own externalized virtues brings us back esatto our poet’s creation of Sir Spynagros. 30 Aculeo is of course Latin for ‘thorn’ or ‘prick’: this was a popular metaphor for the Conscience, as in the hugely popular fourteenthcentury advice manual The Prick of Conscience. The Talis of the Fyve Bestes is also relevant preciso Golagros per the context of the rhetoric of freedom.

This ous persona known as the Tradizione ad Paradisum, in which Alexander receives a reproof for covetousness after demanding tribute at the Gates of Paradise. However, that particular version does not appear in either of the two Scottish Alexander romances. See Mary Lascelles, ‘Alexander and the Earthly Paradise mediante Mediaeval English Writings’, Sensitivo Aevum V (1936), 31–47, 79–104 (pp. 83–7 and 96–104); on Alexander sopra exempla warning against greed generally, see George Cary, The Medieval https://datingranking.net/it/wing-review/ Alexander, ancora.

The terms per which the people of Lapsat refuse Alexander’s

demand for tribute con the ‘Baris Tale’ are strongly reminiscent of Golagros’ refusal sicuro bow to Arthur:31 That quhill we leif we will ?is tovne defend Mediante sic fredome as our antecessouris Has left till ws and till ?is tovne of owris Erar’ we cheiss with worschipe for to de Than for preciso leif durante subiectioun onesto be (‘Baris Tale’, lines 302–6) Quhill I may my wit wald, I think my fredome onesto hald, As my eldaris of ald, Has done me beforne.
