Footnotes

  • The title is taken from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem The Lady of Shalott (1842):

    "Sometimes a troop of damsels glad,
    An abbot on an ambling pad,
    Sometimes a curly shepherd lad,
    Or long-hair'd page in crimson clad
    Goes by to tower'd Camelot;
    And sometimes through the mirror blue
    The knights come riding two and two.
    She hath no loyal Knight and true,
    The Lady of Shalott."
