Pre-Raphaelites and The Lady of Shalott

The Lady of Shalott knows she’s floating down a river to her doom. The Lady of Shalott had spent her whole life shut up in a castle near King Arthur’s Camelot, forbidden to even look outside, upon pain of death. Ms. Shalott burns brightly, her white gown and red hair radiating from the dark background. So — even in the face of great tragedy, high passions, and moral dilemmas — this Lady barely raises an eyebrow. Everyone could read their own meaning into the painting: The Lady has chosen to leave her safe-but-deluded existence to pursue truth.
