Black 1Ginaia BlackDr.PittsEng 320March 20, 2019The passage I chose to dissect are “The Lady of Shalott” . This is the work of Tennyson who wrote very descriptive ballads that grew to be very popular. The lady of Shalott is a story about an isolated woman in a tower far away from the life she wants. She was cursed and hesitated to live the way she wanted to. The story reminds me of Princess Fiona from Shrek. She was trapped in a tower and bound by a curse that turned her intosomething she didn’t want to be. Eventually, when she was free she began to like the way she was cursed; it no longer felt like a bad thing. Her parents hated the way she was cursed, so it made her feel like she needed to go back to her old life and not live the way she wanted. This also resembles people of today who are too afraid to try different things and really experience life. They lose out on the life and experiences theycould have had.Delving deeper into “The Lady of Shalott”,Tennyson uses the opening stanza of his sonnet to set the tone for whatever is left of the ballad.On either side the river lieLong fields of barley and of rye.That clothe the wold and meet the sky;And thro’ the field the road runs byTo many-tower’d Camelot;

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
