With the Gothic Revival and the Romantics came some interest in the Arthurian cycle. In 1813, Sir Walter Scott published The Bridal of Triermain," an Arthurian poem. William Wordsworth's The Egyptian Maid ( 1835) refers to Sir Galahad, although here he is married, while all previous Grail stories refer to Galahad as the "virgin knight." There were, of course, during these two centuries, other stories of Arthurian characters, but none of great significance until Alfred Tennyson published his first Arthurian poem in 1832.
