    Chow 106 :: The Lady Of Shalott

    Chow 106 :: The Lady Of Shalott

    ROUND #106

    THE LADY OF SHALOTT
    -------------
    DESCRIPTION
    The Lady of Shalott

    Try to keep it traditional - but feel free to be creative. So, to totally confuse you: try to keep within the parameters of the poem and character, but if you want to throw a twist on it, go for it.

    Lord Tynnyson's Poem

    Lady of Shalott by Donato Giancola

    Kind of a rough recording of Loreen McKennit's version. Best one I could find though. The video is pointless.

    Oh great. Sure. Lady of Shallot. You had to throw that at me, huh?

    I don't think I have the time...damn and double damn.

    Hmm...who needs sleep anyway?

    This is so LAME, but I totally get a better vision of Lancelot for this. I'm a sucker for "dark curls" I guess...

    Just a quick clarification: By way of traditional, I mean subject matter, setting, costume etc - not media.

    [edit]Lalilulelo: I'm expecting that bitchbot in a boat from you now.

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    Seems to me you could concentrate on Lancelot while still keeping with the traditional theme of the piece. The description does give her a rather large scrying mirror, after all.

    Poor Oregano...keeps trying to keep us all on point...and then there are ROBOTS.

    Swan - Oh no, I realize...I just mean it's more important that I visualize the character that ACTUALLY has to be designed.

    Mirana: Heh, well, Lord Tennyson does go on a bit about how pretty ol' Lance was, doesn't he?

    But I look on that as good news, really. Since I don't recall he does much more than describe color of the Lady's dress, there's a lot of room to play with.

    Maybe even enough room for....robots! Hmmm?

    I am half sick of shadows...

    By the way Shane, she's not an onion. Shalott, not Shallot (Sorry, shoot the pedant!)

    I absolutely love the topic. Two of the 'Lady of Shalotts' by Waterhouse are framed prints on my wall at home. But she's a real victim. I mean, she just dies! No reason for it. Floats off down the river and drops dead, probably of melancholy or one of those other silly Victorian illnesses. I'm tempted to stick her in some armour and give her a sword! But I'm a bit concerned this topic is really going to be down to 'pretty pictures' as the 'concept' is already there.

    A synopsis of the poem:

    Tennyson's poem of "The Lady of Shalott" (text) relates the story of a woman cursed to remain inside a tower on Shalott, an island situated in the river which flows to Camelot. No others know of her existence, as her curse forbids her to leave the tower or to even look outside its windows. Instead, a large mirror within her chamber reflects the outside world, and she weaves a tapestry illustrating its wonders by means of the mirror's reflection. As the poem progresses, the Lady becomes increasingly aware of the love which abounds in the outside world, and she tires of her lonely existence in her tower, saying she is "half sick of shadows". Then seeing Sir Lancelot riding down to Camelot, the Lady leaves her loom to look down on him directly from her window, which immediately fulfills the curse. Her tapestry begins to unravel and the mirror cracks as she recognizes the consequences of her impulsive action. She flees her tower and finds a boat in the river which she marks with her name and loosens from its moorings. She dies before her boat reaches Camelot, where she would have finally found life and love, and Lancelot muses over the beauty of this unknown woman when the inhabitants find her body.

    No joke. Actually, I think by proper Victorian sentiment she died of "forgetting her place." I mean, literally looking outside her narrow little world? The cheek! What a nervy little bitch, eh?
