    “The Lady of Shalott.” "Tirra lirra," by the river Sang Sir Lancelot,” in my opinion, is one of the best lines of the poem “The Lady of Shalott.” This line of the poem signifies the breaking point of the poem. “The Lady of Shalott” is a very detailed yet simple poem to understand. It was written by Lord Alfred Tennyson in 1832 and later revised in 1842 (The Lady of Shalott). There are examples of imagery and themes that are seen throughout the entire poem. “The Lady of Shalott” is one of many

    The Lady of Shalott and Industrialized Misery Alfred Lord Tennyson, one of the mid-Victorian's most celebrated poets of the time, was genius in "eloquently presenting the anxieties and aspirations of his era" (Longman  p. 1909).  Trademarks of Victorian life included questioning faith, the Bible, the past, and the self.  More and more people were interested in the industry of man rather than the uniqueness of nature, and progress of society proved that man was made to dominate and take everything

    A Feminist Perspective of The Lady of Shalott In an essay on feminist criticism, Linda Peterson of Yale University explains how literature can "reflect and shape the attitudes that have held women back" (330).

    Comparing Form and Content of Jabberwocky, The Raven, and Lady of Shalott In many poems, the use of imagery and sound causes the reader to consider them to be "good" or "bad". Repetition, alliteration, the use of metaphors and images together with rhymes and the text itself work together to create that special feeling or message the poet wants to share. The Romantics believed that poetry should express the poet's feelings or state of mind and should not be worked with or thought through too

    Comparing Lady of Shalott and Morte d' Arthur Lord Tennyson wrote both Morte d' Arthur and The Lady of Shalott. He set both of the poems in medieval Camelot and describes knights and love.

The Lady of Shalott is more of a fairy story with a sad ending, but Morte d' Arthur is much more serious and sad from the beginning

    The Lady of Shalott by Alfred Lord Tennyson written in 1843 On either side the river lie on fields of barley and of rye, That clothe the wold and meet the sky; And thro' the field the road runs by To many-tower'd Camelot; And up and down the people go, Gazing where the lilies blow Round an island there below, The island of Shallot. Willows whiten, aspens quiver, Little breezes dusk and shiver Thro' the wave that runs for ever By the island in the river Flowing down to Camelot. Four gray walls, and
