Juvenalia

Three days in June
During the Juvenalia festival each year in Krakow, Poland, the students of Jagiellonian University take over the city for three days. After the mayor hands over the keys to the city, they dress up in costumes and masks and parade through the streets making fun of anything they choose. This celebration goes back to a medieval tradition, when new students at the university had to pay a tax to older ones as part of their ritual entry into college life—much like the "hazing" that goes on in fraternities and sororities at American colleges.

All being is congruent; hence the catalogue of analogies in his sonnet "As Kingfishers Catch Fire, Dragonflies Draw Flame." Significantly, Tennyson removed in subsequent editions the radically domain divergent simile vehicle that opens the 1832 version, in Poems, of "A Dream of Fair Women." The first two stanzas (eight lines) develop the vehicle of a man sailing in a balloon--"As when a man that sails in a balloon / Downlooking sees the solid shining ground"--that is employed to figure the topic of a poet "at his will" gazing upon "the great world" and its "secret splendours." Nevertheless, it is Tennyson's sonnet "As When We Muse and Brood," also first published in the 1832 Poems, and republished as Juvenalia in 1872, that may have been a model for the as/so sonnets of Rossetti.
