This poem is one of the first I ever read, and is a true pleasure to read aloud. Go on, give it a try! But, perhaps only do so when nobody else is in the house, to save embarrassment. The Lady of Shallot is a lonely figure; she is isolated form the world and stuck up in a tower. She can only look...

This suits my current frame of mind beautifully. An absolutely splendid work. That's all I need to say. I read it years ago but now it seems to have had more of a profound impact on me for some obscure reason. It's short but one can really savour all the nuances. I especially liked: "“She left the web...

Alongside Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven, Alfred Tennyson's The Lady of Shalott stands as one of the more fascinating works of poetry from the 1800s. Aesthetically it is a work of great and simply beauty, therefore providing evidence that language in a poetic simplicity can provide some of the great...

Many people, I dare say most, will claim to not like poetry, but this is one of those poems that I believe everyone can read and enjoy. The enchantment of the rhythm and rhyme of Tennyson's words, the hint of romance and the allusion to magic, all combine to make this poem a memorable pleasure. Te...

They're reading it in class, and they've just reached the lineAnd round about the prow she wrote: 'The Lady of Shalott'.The schoolgirl, daydreaming and only half paying attention, imagines herself talking with Tenn...

My favorite poem. Even after all these years, it still gets to me. It is long, but worth it, I feel. I beg of you to read past the Romantic descriptions of nature and the older English to what's really in there: On either side the river lie Long fields of barley and of rye, That clothe the wold an...

I had to read this book today for work purposes. Oh my God, I loved it so much! I would recommend knowing the plot BEFORE reading it! That really helps with Tennyson or any form of ballad, I think. In the space of about a day, I fell in love with a poem. Who knew what joys work could bring!!! I init...

This story is loosely based on the tale of Elaine of Astolat, and of her love for Lancelot, which in this poem brings upon her a curse that leaves her dead. Arthurian legends defined my childhood, so it is only basic that such a poem would mark me. The Lady cannot look upon the people, so she sta...

Lanetlendiği için Camelot'un yüksek kulelerinden birine hapsedilen bir kadını anlatır. Kadının kuleden dışarı bakması kesinlikle yasaktır, eğer dışarı çıkarsa ya da pencereden bakarsa ölecektir. Tek avuntusu kulenin duvarına asılı olan bir aynanın gösterdikleridir. Bazen güneşli bir sabahta göğe u...
