The Lady of Shalott

1393 ratings | 36003 views
In celebration of the 2009 bicentenary of the birth of Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) WAG Screen and Crow's Eye Productions made a short, filmed dramatisation of his poem The Lady of Shalott to be shown at The Collection, Lincoln. Inspiration for the visual imagery came from the many Pre-Raphaelite paintings that the poem inspired, but most especially the paintings of the artist John William Waterhouse.

It would be amazing if you subtitled this video and made it more accessible to more people. You don't even have to do much, you could copy and paste the poem into YouTube and it will automatically match up the written text with the spoken lines. Here's a video on how to do that: https://youtu.be/LNl2bLJilt0 (starts at 1:33) Of course, you don't have to do that, I just think it would be really great and help your beautiful work of art to be more accessible to a lot of people (especially the poetic language can be a bit hard to follow for foreign speakers).

Yes, I need to do this for all the videos. I shall sit down and see to it when a free day presents itself! We shoot our Halloween special 'Getting Dressed' video on Monday and Tuesday. Going to try to keep the subject matter a surprise but we might drop some little hints!

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

By the by, that was a comment on the similarity between Tennyson and Poe, not an exhortation to give up the poetry. It's lovely.

CrowsEyeProductions thanks. I came across this channel because of Lady of Shalott video but then saw all your other videos. I love it, going to watch all of them over next few days. Do you ever need volunteers for any of your productions?

What a breath of fresh air this video is! Thank you for bringing such high value content to YouTube, in a medium usually dominated by low-content creators. Personally I am just getting into the romantic poets, and I would love to see more reenactments like this one. Everything about this was so well conceived and executed. Videos this like this could bring poetry to such a large audience. Thank you to everyone who put so much hard work into this!!!

Emily Olorin (7 months ago)
Spectacular! I had to pause the video at several points (both in the drawing room, and in the dramatisation) in order to excitedly pick apart the costumes; they were so consistently spectacular and accurate, I adored watching this.

Why did she have to die? Why couldn’t the knight break the curse :-(
Miss Shuck (2 months ago)
Fabiola - no one knows who put the curse on her or why, it is not mentioned in the poem. The only thing we know is that she can only look at the outside world via the mirror. By looking at Lancelot and then at Camelot, not using the mirror, she brings the curse upon herself. It is not mentioned that Lancelot is aware of the Lady in her tower, or the curse, so I doubt he would have been able to save her.
Mikayla Edelstein (3 months ago)
The knight caused the curse actually.

It's strange to see how much woman's formal changes so often where as men's always seems to be a suit for hundreds of hears
Tipi Dan (5 months ago)
Yes--- men's fashion has been in a (very uptight) rut since the Victorian era, undergoing only minor modification. The introduction of chinos [khakis] and the leather bomber jacket during WW2 a notable exception. Since then everything has been derivative, especially for men. I'm for a return to the loose tunic, cloak, and trousers [with external garters] that sufficed from The Bronze Age through Norman times--- and to free form "wraps" of all kinds for both sexes. Free the future!
