The Lady of Shalott Puzzle
Tailten Games & Puzzles
This masterpiece shows a scene from Lord Alfred Tennyson's 1832 poem of the same name, in which the poet describes the plight of a young woman isolated under an undisclosed curse in a tower near King Arthur's Camelot. According to legend, the lady was forbidden to look directly at reality; instead she was doomed to view the world through a mirror, and weave what she saw into tapestry. Her despair was heightened when she saw loving couples in the far distance, and she spent her days and nights aching for a return to reality. One day she saw Sir Lancelot passing on his way in the reflection of the mirror, and dared to look out at Camelot, bringing about a curse. The lady escaped by boat during an autumn storm. As she sailed towards Camelot and certain death, she sang a lament. Her frozen body was found by the knights and ladies of Camelot. The tapestry she had woven during her imprisonment was found draped over the side of the boat.
John William Waterhouse, 1849-1917, was born in the city of Rome. He was an English artist who was most famous for his paintings of female characters from Greek and Arthurian mythology. He has been referred to as the "modern Pre-Raphaelite", and incorporated techniques borrowed from the French Impressionists into his work.
