Tennyson's Poems

6. Which of the following best explains how the poem’s, The Lady of Shalott, form contributes to its meaning?

A The repetition of “the Lady of Shalott” is ironic since her name is emphasized, but she is not the focus of the poem.

B The rhyme scheme of this poem creates an eerie, unsettling tone, since most of the rhymes are discordant and aesthetically displeasing.

C The repetition of “the Lady of Shalott” and the rhyme scheme that emphasizes her name provide a contrast with the end of the poem, in which only the Lady's name is left.

D The repetition of Shalott that rhymes repeatedly with Lancelot and Camelot reinforce the Lady’s longing for this person and place.
