What is the theme of the poem 'When I set out for Lyonnesse'?

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

In the poem 'When I set out for Lyonnesse' the poet talks about the journey to the place, and the uncertainty of what would happen there. He states that no prophet would be able to say what he would see there or what his journey is all about. However, on his return to his land, people noticed a change in him. There was magic in his eyes and a radiance shone from his face. Thus, the poem talks about the influence that the journey had upon his life and the transformation that came upon him.
