    2. The Lady of Shalott and I’m ashamed to say I’m not absolutely certain of the poet but maybe Tennyson. I used to be able to quote it but can only remember snatches now.

  3. Will says:

    I think it’s just ‘The Lady of Shallot.’

    Not sure…looks like William Morris or his mate Rossetti. From that era anyway.

    The Lady of Shallot, which makes the first question suspiciously easy. It’s by Tennyson “I am half sick of shadows’, said the lady of Shallot.’ I quite like it.

    Not sure…Mallory?

    Art nouveau? My wife would know but she is out.

    1. Lady of Shalott

    2. John William Waterhouse

    3. “The Lady of Shalott” by William Wordsworth

    4. It is based on a legend from the time of King Arthur about Elaine of Astolat and an Italian novel.

    5. Pre-Raphaelite??? It’s a guess as this style had a fascination with things Arthurian.

  6. Andrei says:

    (1) Mother Teresa

    (2) Saint Teresa of Calcutta

    (3) Skopje – which today is the capital of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (to be strictly formal)

    She was an Albanian Catholic, rather than an Albanian Muslim or Orthodox Macedonian which is a minority group within a minority I guess

    (4) Ireland

    (5) India
