The Lady Of Shalott.
Oxford University Press, Incorporated, 1989 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
Willows whiten, aspens quiver,
Little breezes dusk and shiver
Thro' the wave that runs for ever
By the island in the river
Flowing down to Camelot.
Four gray walls, and four gray towers,
Overlook a space of flowers,
And the silent isle imbowers
The Lady of Shallot.
The familiar words of this romantic poem have been enriched by the mysterious and evocative charcoal drawings of the late Charles Keeping. His illustrations will serve to stir the poetic imagination of readers familiar with Tennyson's haunting poem and will add an intriguing element of suspense and drama to newcomers. A memorable book -- for children and adults alike.
