As a critique of Victorian society and the rampant hypocrisy that marked the upper-class society's moral beliefs and practices, Tennyson portrays the Arthurian legend of Camelot in ways that are specifically familiar to the influence of John Milton's "Paradise Lost" and which comprise an allegorical interpretation of Victorian society.
