The Lady of Shallot - Alfred Tennyson

The Lady of Shalott, to me, is a poem of interest because of the Arthurian theme.

Another example of the tragic figures surrounding these legends, and how obviously hot that Lancelot bloke was, given how all the girls seemed to desperately want him.

When the breaks the magical taboo of actually looking at him, rather than via a mirror, her doom falls, and she sails, in death, down a river.
