Legends - King Arthur - Lady of Shallott
Short commentary and various links to sites around the net, concerning the Lily Maid of Astolat

The Lady of Shalott
Another short essay. Includes the webring "For all the Ladies of Shallott"


Arthurian Women
An online encyclopedia of all the female figures of the Arthurian Legends, includes Elaine of Corbenic and Elaine of Astolat as well as Lancelot's mother Elaine.

The Elaines
A page listing all the Elaines in the Arthurian tales. A good example of how confusing this whole question can be. Nice site, though. :o)

On "The Waste Land"
This is kinda interesting. It is a paper on T.S. Eliot's use of Grail Quest symbolism in his poem, The Waste Land. Contemporary use of the myth, but still worth it and applicable to Elaine of Corbenic.


The Holy Grail, Dante Rossetti.
