The Lady of Shalott

About the Film

In celebration of the 2009 bicentenary of the birth of Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) WAG Screen 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. We also filmed the reading of the poem by Tennyson to an after dinner audience at Christmas 1856.

  • The Lady of Shalott dramatisation (14 minutes)
  • Tennyson reading The Lady of Shalott (9 minutes)
  • Conversation between Ben Poole (Tennyson) and Grace Timmins (Tennyson Research Centre) (16 minutes)
  • Dante Ferrara – La Donna di Shalott, music video (4 minutes)

Down she came and found a boat
Beneath a willow left afloat,
And around about the prow she wrote
The Lady of Shalott.

    • You can purchase a copy of the Lady of Shalott DVD here on the web site or you can have a look at the trailers – there are three in total and you can see one on our front page. We are currently donating 50% of the DVD sales to help our American friend and colleague with her medical bills after a family accident.

    I saw the trailers and I AM so happy and excited that someone FINALLY made a film to portray this wonderful piece of poetry. I always dreamt of someone doing this and here it is…and so well done too. Great Job.
