The Lady of Shalott discussion guide


Synopsis: The Lady of Shallot is a narrative poem in four parts.

The first part describes the setting, a rural idyll:

On either side the river lie

Long 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.’

The road to Camelot is frequented by travellers who pause to look across at the mystical island and fortress where it is rumoured that the Lady of Shalott is imprisoned:

Four grey walls, and four grey towers

Overlook a space of flowers,

And the silent isle embowers

            The Lady of Shalott
