Gypsy structure: capacity to “cast a spell” over those he meets Uses him as a self­reflexive metaphor to art Signaling how art is marginalized in the modern world (Only exists around the edges) The Lady of Shallott Act of “weaving” metaphor for the act of writing Lady of Shallott cannot live within society Symbol of how art cannot exist within society The Lotus Eaters—men do not want to return home to their wives “The Scholar Gyps
