The Lady of Shalott

Thank you so much for sharing. Hugs, Barbara

Picture This uk

The Lady of Shalott poem (1842 version below) by Alfred Lord Tennyson was the inspiration for the painting of the same name by John William Waterhouse here ⇒. The poem was loosely based upon the tragic Arthurian legend of Elaine of Astolat.  There is an 1833 version and an 1842 version of the poem.  This is the latter.

The poem includes the phrase “The mirror crack’d from side to side” which was used for the title of a Miss Marple murder mystery by Agatha Christie.
