This talk explores the strategies that authors use to adapt the figures of the Lady of Shalott and Elaine of Astolat. It examines a range of texts from the nineteenth-century to the present day to demonstrate both the popularity of the figure of the dead Lady / Lily Maid and the ways in which the equation of love, death, and femininity have been resisted in adapting this figure.

The November Brock Talk is being given by Dr. Ann Howey, Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at Brock University, and has been co-organized by the Humanities Research Institute and The Centre for Canadian Studies.

This program is a virtual event via Zoom.
