Vivien (Merlin and Vivian) Vivian is a character in "Merlin and Vivien”, one of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s Idylls of the King based on the Arthurian legends, and published between 1856 and 1885. She insinuates herself into the court at Camelot, and, failing to seduce Arthur, sets her cap for Merlin. Her purpose is to discredit what she perceives to be the corruption of Camelot, and she intends to destroy Merlin by convincing him to teach her a charm that will imprison him forever. As portrayed by Tennyson, she is evil hearted and bent upon destruction of all that is good, drenched in symbolism harking back to the Biblical passages on Eve, the destroyer of mankind. We’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt – she was, after all, born on a battlefield where her parents died at Arthur’s hands. Perhaps just a little revenge is in order, and if a magician-by-trade is no match for her, well, more fool him!
