Poetic & Artistic Inspiration

The Lady of Shalott
John William Waterhouse, 1888

"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;

And up and down the people go,

Gazing where the lilies blow 

Round an island there below, 

The island of Shalott."

from "The Lady of Shalott"by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1842
