Abstract

After a brief précis of Eddison’s life, the author discusses the genre of The Worm Ouroboros, basing most of his arguments on Frye’s Anatomy of Criticism. Following is an examination of the tale’s sources, most notably elements from the Norse sagas, The Travels of Sir John Mandeville, and Orlando Furioso.
