Lady of Shalott

A Victorian ballad by the poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson 1833

The first four stanzas describe a pastoral setting. The Lady of Shalott lives in an island castle in a river which flows to Camelot, but little is known about her by the local farmers.

And by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, " 'Tis the fairy
Lady of Shalott."

Stanzas five through eight describe the lady's life. She has been cursed, and so must constantly weave a magic web without looking directly out at the world. Instead, she looks into a mirror which reflects the busy road and the people of Camelot which pass by her island.

She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.

Stanzas nine through twelve describe "bold Sir Lancelot" as he rides past, and is seen by the lady.

All in the blue unclouded weather
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
The helmet and the helmet-feather
Burn'd like one burning flame together,
As he rode down to Camelot.

The remaining seven stanzas describe the effect of seeing Lancelot on the lady; she stops weaving and looks out her window toward Camelot, bringing about the curse.

Out flew the web and floated wide-
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.

She leaves her tower, finds a boat upon which she writes her name, and floats down the river to Camelot. She dies before arriving at the palace, and among the knights and ladies who see her is Lancelot and he thinks she is beautiful.

"Who is this? And what is here?"
And in the lighted palace near
Died the sound of royal cheer;
And they crossed themselves for fear,
All the Knights at Camelot;
But Lancelot mused a little space
He said, "She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,
The Lady of Shalott."

The Queen of Hearts Roses

The Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland (1865) by Lewis Carrol was a character portrayal of Queen Victoria (who reigned 1837 – 1901). The Victorian Era. The characters who were seen as playing cards in the garden were 'Painting the Roses Red' to keep the queen happy - or it was 'Off with their head!' Traditionally, white roses were symbolic of purity whilst red roses were symbolic of passion and martyrdom. The Rose Garden is a symbol of Paradise.

Beauty & the Beast

Slaying the Inner Beast.

Whilst some say that the story of Beauty & the Beast is a bad influence on teaching young women to fall in love with a total ass, and that through her gentle unconditional love he turns into a warm and tender loving man. Others say that the story is really a coming of age, for a maiden to slay the inner beast that is a negative reflection of her own masculine image. What Jung calls, the animus, and for her to become a whole and capable woman.
