Transcript of The lady of Shalott

The Lady of Shalott
Freudian mind set

The Lady of Shallots ego was in control of her while she sat weaving her tapestry for a very long time. She knew she was cursed and that realistically the best this she could do was to obey the terms of her curse.
Id,ego and super-ego
The defense mechanism is triggered when anxiety becomes too overwhelming, this is when the ego uses the defense mechanism. Anxiety is thus seen as a crucial one and a threat to its equilibrium, thus allowing the defense mechanism to take control.
Ego:
The ego prevents us from acting on our basic urges,works to achieve a balance with our moral and idealistic standards.
Super-Ego:
Works to achieve a balance with our moral and idealistic standards.

Id:
Unconscious psychic energy that works to satisfy basic urges, needs, and desires.
The lady of Shalott's id is more overpowering than the ego and super-ego, with the overwhelming desire to escape. Knowing that if she follows that desire, she will brake the mysterious curse that is upon her, thus introducing the not so powerful ego.
Defense mechanism
Defense mechanisms work by distorting the id impulses by unconscious or conscious blockage of past memories.
The lady of Shalott did not recollect how she became cursed. It is conceivable that she had a very traumatic event in her life, and due to the defense mechanism, her past memories were blocked to protect her.
"She knows not what the 'curse' may be."
Part II, stanza 1, line 6
ID
Super-Ego:
Works to achieve a balance with our moral and idealistic standards.

The Lady of Shalott's super-ego is in the poem to show the there are differences in morals and idealistic standards and requires a balance to have a good life.
The Lady of Shallot is compelled by her id to break the curse, and leave the cabin in pursuit of Lancelot. She does not conscientiously do this.
Id:
Unconscious psychic energy that works to satisfy basic urges, needs, and desires.
