Chapter Summary

Habbakuk the prophet is the writer of the book of that name in the Old Testament. The use of this lesser known material may reinforce the theory that Stewart read Ariosto in the original Italian which is discussed in the note to C2, L283. Furthermore, he is described as &t;prudent&t;, meaning &t;wise&t;, prudence being one of the nine virtues.So even wisdom cannot save one from the pains of Love. Roland is described here as the lion, the king of beasts and a symbol of pre-eminence and nobility. Here, Angelique's former sway over men the world over, is discussed in some detail to heighten the sense of her present misery.Alexis is the object of unrequited love of Coridoa.Asia here refers to the modern continent of Asia with the exclusion of Japan,Malaysia and Indonesia.

Keywords: lion; nobility; old Testament; prudent; symbol; Text; unrequited love
