The Once and Future King Book 3, Chapter 19 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
It is two years later and King Pelles is sitting in his study with a friend, Sir Bliant. Sir Bliant tells King Pelles the story of the Wild Man: a few years ago, Sir Bliant had been hunting in the woods when a naked man ran into his pavilion. Sir Bliant had taken the man back to his castle where he had fed and looked after him for over a year. Sometime later, Sir Bliant was out falconing alone when two errant knights had attacked him. He had rode back to his castle all the while being chased by the two knights. Suddenly, the Wild Man had appeared from nowhere, attacked the two knights and saved Sir Bliant. A few months after this, the Wild Man had rode away with a boar hunt and supposedly been killed. The rumor is this man was Sir Lancelot.
Lancelot, even without his mind, maintains some of his fundamental qualities—his knightly skill and his loyalty to those around him, here being Sir Bliant.
