How does Endymion communicate?

This study took pains to look not through the poem, but, inductively, at it. In the writer asked, what is Endymion? Can the variegated images, themes, and myths be classified? What is the organizing principle, if any, in the poem? Toward answering these questions, this paper examines the critical literature, attempts a synthesis of that literature in terms of ten parallel points of structure, and presents an analysis of the total structure of Endymion.
