Sample text

Kittiwake a small gull. W. H. Hudson English naturalist and writer (1841–1922). Critical Commentaries: Chapters 20–21 53 Chapters 20–21 Summary Six years pass. Although the Wart’s education has continued and he has been transformed into countless different animals, he has grown melancholy and jealous of Kay’s impending knighthood. Kay, of course, has no concern for the Wart’s feelings and remains a stubborn and sarcastic young man. Merlyn consoles the Wart by telling him that “only fools want to be great,” but the Wart pays him no heed, instead telling Merlyn how he would behave, given the chance to be knighted.

Similarly, Kay’s impending knighthood should make him a better person; instead, he becomes more stubborn and nasty than ever before. At this point in his development, the Wart is all potential and exists as a figurative “embryo” in the world of chivalry, politics, and leadership. The final conversation between the Wart and the badger suggests just how embryonic the Wart remains, even at this late date in his education. When the badger points out the fact that Man possesses “a quantity of vices,” the worst of which is his tendency to engage in warfare, the Wart fervently (and without any thought) defends his own species.

Finally, after saying goodbye to Robin and his men, the boys return—as heroes—to the Castle of the Forest Sauvage. Chapter 12 ends with Wat and the Dog Boy reunited as friends. Commentary The parable told by Merlyn at the beginning of Chapter 9 serves as his explanation of why he can tutor only the Wart and also analogously depicts the relationship between the wizard and his tutor. In the parable, Elijah (a Biblical prophet) and Rabbi Jachanan are traveling and stay at a poor man’s home and then in the cowshed of a rich merchant.
