The Lady of Shalott (PowerPoint)

The Lady of Shalott

The Lady of Shalott - John Atkinson Grimshaw


In keeping with the Victorian fondness both for Arthurian legend and women in distress, the Pre-Raphaelite painters had a decided enthusiasm for Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem “The Lady of Shalott.”  This PowerPoint below will familiarize you with some of the richly beautiful Pre-Raphaelite paintings as well as the text of the poem.  There is also an outstanding version of this song sung by Loreena McKennit — check out the YouTube video here.
