Title-page to 'Part II'
'But Lancelot mused a little space; / He said, 'She has a lovely face; / God in his mercy lend her grace, / The Lady of Shalott.'
'And they cross'd themselves for fear, / All the knights of Camelot'
'Out upon the wharfs they came, / Knight and burgher, lord and dame, / And round the prow they read her name, / The Lady of Shalott'
'Under tower and balcony, / By garden-wall and gallery, / A gleaming shape she floated by, / Dead-pale between the houses high, / Silent into Camelot'
'The dead Lady floateth down ye / stream toward Camelot'
'The Lady dieth floating adown the stream'
'As often thro' the purple night, / Below the stary clusters bright, / Some bearded meteor, trailing light, / Moves over still Shalott'
'Thro' the noises of the night / She floated down to Camelot.'
Colour lithograph with text
'And down the river's dim expanse / Like some bold seër in a trance'
'In which the Fairy Lady seeks the River'
'The gemmy bridle glitter'd free / Like to some branch of stars we see / Hung in the golden Galazy.'
Title-page to 'Part III'
'What she sees in the mirror'
'Down she came and found a boat / Beneath a willow left afloat, ...'
'She left the web, she left the loom, / She made three paces thro' the room,'
'Out flew the web and floated wide; / The mirror cracked from side to side; / "The curse has come upon me," cried / The Lady of Shalott'
'A bow-shot from her bower-eaves, / He rode between the barley sheaves'
'The Fairy Lady of Shalott in the space of flowers'
'His broad clear brow in sunlight glow'd'
