The Well At The World's End [PDF]

by William Morris
I kept looking for deeper pattern, deeper symbolism, and deeper meaning, and am left with a confused message.The whole of Volume One was travel through troubled lands, with each city/town/nation beset by some injustice.Ralph avoids entanglement, floating above worldly matters.

Here, the final stages of the journey to the WELL is like a purification quest, through hardship and strange adventure.

But what of afterward?Becoming a Friend of the Well conveys benefits tangible and intangible, and one would think that this is the key for Ralph and his new bride Ursula (view spoiler)
