Top 100 Classic Poems and Ballads - The Lady of Shalott - A Classic Victorian Ballad - Alfred Tennyson. "The Lady of Shalott" is a Victorian ballad by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892). Like his other early poems - "Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere" and "Galahad" - the poem recasts Arthurian subject matter loosely based on medieval sources. Tennyson wrote two versions of the poem, one published in 1833, of twenty stanzas, the other in 1842 of nineteen stanzas.The poem was loosely based on the Arthurian legend of Elaine of Astolat, as recounted in a thirteenth-century Italian novella titled Donna di Scalotta (No. LXXXII in the collection Cento Novelle Antiche), with the earlier version being closer to the source material than the later. Tennyson focused on the Lady's "isolation in the tower and her decision to participate in the living world, two subjects not even mentioned in Donna di Scalotta."
Salaam/Shalom is the true story of a Jewish woman s experiences as a teacher in an Islamic school as she embraces a beautiful awakening and learns to focus on likenesses rather than differences. Janet Goldman relies on extensive research and her own personal experiences during her two years of teaching at the Islamic school to offer a compelling glimpse into the many similarities between Islam and Judaism. Through comparing religious and cultural practices, ranging from prayer traditions to food, Goldman hopes to help bridge religious barriers and encourage a peaceful world. In this book, the lucid descriptions of both Jewish and Muslim traditions and our respective communities will help bring about understanding and hopefully, more peace through knowledge.
