The Lady of the Lake Steals Lancelot


This picture illustrates the lines from Tennyson's "Lancelot and Elaine" idyll:

Lancelot, whom the Lady of the Lake
Stole from his mother--as the story runs--

(changed in later editions to:
Lancelot, whom the Lady of the Lake
Caught from his mother's arms--the wondrous one . . .
)
