The poem he purportedly writes follows lines What this distance means in terms of the narrator's ability to rehearse the lady's story is not clear; what is clear is that the narrator does not share the intimacy of the two ladies, both initially alone, who pair up and walk off together: "one [direction] thai tuo ysamyn gan to fare" line Linne R. Good Hope, his guide, appears again and leads him to an enclosed garden in which he sees Fortune turning her wheel, raising some to high estate and casting down others When she quizzes him about his intentions, he answers that his is a noble and true love, and she sends him on to Fortune for further assistance This "eclecticism," derived in part from Lydgate's influence, makes this poem particularly difficult for modern readers.

Mary Carr et al. Like jealousy, "bound" has positive and negative implications. This intensity also takes attention off of the unsupportable confusion of the narrator and elides the question of whether or not he is qualified to speak "for this ladies sak" line At a most basic level, then, The Kingis Quair is about James' suffering and feelings of impotence in the face of fortune or the goddess Fortuna in both his life and his love. As the narrator watches, camouflaged by leaves, from his secret space, the woman weeps, sighs, and complains, while, in her sorrow, "[h]ir coloure.

He can therefore only relate her story at second hand, albeit empathetically. Mary Carr et al. Moved by her weeping, the narrator plans to reveal himself and offer the lady comfort, but before he can make his move, another lady comes along, and the two of them walk off together. The section of heroic verse that begins the poem acts as a prologue, where the narrator frames his story and explains his reasons for writing. Scholars believe, and we concur, that this work is important enough to be preserved, reproduced, and made generally available to the public.

The narrator proceeds with an explanation of the blameless and long-suffering nature of women, and the contemptibility of those who would accuse them unjustly before moving into a kind of history of Jealousy, in which he explains how Jealousy was perceived "in the tyme.

The topic of the narrator's discourse, jealousy, is necessarily double. The poem then advances swiftly into the narrator's "trety in the reprefe of Jelousye" after line It is his moment of "fantasy" that motivates the narrator to decide that "for this ladies sak" line he will compose something in condemnation of The kingis quair and The quare of jelusy book, no matter what anyone thinks "quho be wroth, or quho be blith" [line ].

He was successful in his profession, and acquired the estate of Woodhouselee near Roslin on the south of the Pentland Hills. James' blend of natural and artificial diction, of waking and dreaming perspectives, of realistic and allegorical encounters remind one of Lydgatean dream visions like The Temple of Glas and The Complaint of the Black Knight.

Looking out, he sees a beautiful woman, and falls in love. This work is in the public domain in the United States of America, and possibly other nations.

His inability even to see where they go - "Bot quhens thai past I can nocht you declare" line - suggests that the narrator's ability to speak against Jealousy in this woman's cause is suspect, since he cannot even observe her destination once she passes out of his immediate purview.

He never actually exchanges a word with her in the course of the entire poem. As a reproduction of a historical artifact, this work may contain missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc.

In the face of the impenetrable unit of the "tuo ysamyn," the narrator is unable to enact his role as the lady's comforter and potential lover and is left to insert himself into the narrative by taking on the woman's complaint, an act that may itself be a sign of jealousy.

As the narrator watches, camouflaged by leaves, from his secret space, the woman weeps, sighs, and complains, while, in her sorrow, "[h]ir coloure. It went through four editions, was translated into French inand again inand it was reviewed by Samuel Johnson and Tobias Smollett.

Yet the narrator's descriptions of the lady clearly reveal his attraction to her and suggest the possibility that he could become jealous in his turn.

The narrator claims that Fortune kept her promise to him by increasing his wisdom, so that he is now in a state of happiness with his beloved.

Summary[ edit ] The poem begins with the narrator who, alone and unable to sleep, begins to read Boethius ' Consolation of Philosophy.

In it, he visits three dreamscapes, encountering a deity in each: Venus, Minerva, and Fortune. This woman is ultimately to be the means of his liberation, and this sequence of events closely parallels the biography of James I of Scotland.

The narrator's seeming defense of women is as fraught as his relationship to jealousy and the woman whose complaint he purports to represent.
