Where is her oarsmen? She look as if she's about to swoon!

In Tennyson's "The Lady of Shalott" the lady floats down to Camelot alone, dying during the passage.


In his earlier "Lancelot and Elaine" the lady's dead body floats down to Camelot with a servant oarsman who is mute because his tongue had been cut out years earlier.
