You might like to consider how the Lady of Shalott presents us with a very idealised depiction of a woman. The Lady of Shalott is beautiful and locked away from the world and is not able to cope with reality, only being able to look at the world through a mirror and seeing its reflection. Is there a sense in which this poem therefore presents women as bystanders in the world rather than actual actors who can participate and make a difference?
