Abstract

Edelman offers a possible solution to the vexing problem of the use of the term 'Argerd' in George Peele's poem 'The Battle of Alcazar,' to which scholars seem never to have found an explanation. A possible solution to the problem presents itself when one considers that not only people, but also places can be greeted or saluted by the expression 'all hail' and arrange the lines as 'All hail, Argier! Zareo, and ye Moors' instead of 'All haile Argerd Zareo and yee Moores.'
