The Lady Of Shalott

by Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Lady Of Shalott Synopsis

Four gray walls, and four gray towers, Overlook a space of flowers, And the silent isle imbowers The Lady of Shalott. Tennyson's romantic poem, full of atmosphere and emotion, tells the story of the mysterious Lady of Shalott. In this exquisite illustrated edition, Charles Keeping's evocative pictures take us to Camelot, a fabled world of knights and castles, to witness the cursed life and tragic death of a beautiful but doomed maiden. This new edition features rescanned artwork to capture the inspiring detail of Keeping's illustrations and a striking new cover.

The Lady Of Shalott Press Reviews

The striking quality of these classic poems is such that they still offer excitement and intensity for today's young readers with Keeping's unique interpretation providing a marvellous way into the poetry. * Dave Chant, Carousel * Keeping's illustrations are amongst the most powerful images ever to have appeared in children's literature. * Books for Keeps *
