What happens at the “Elfin Grot” and how does it impact the knight?

1 Answer

  1. In the poem “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” or “The Lady Without Mercy”, the knight tells the poet that the lady took him to her “Elfin Grot” i.e. a small fairy cave. There she lays herself in the arms of the knight and weeps a lot and kept mourning.

    The knight is full of love for her and kisses her eyes. And afterwards he goes to sleep and dreams of kings and princes who warn him that the lady is without mercy. After waking up, he finds that she is not there and he is left alone to suffer the loneliness and misery.
