We should probably talk about the Lady of Shalott. It's a simple tale: the Lady in question is trapped in her castle in the middle of a river, unable to even look outside, lest she die. She can, however, see things through her mirror. It's through said mirror that she sees Lancelot and, as women are wont to do after seeing Lancelot, she promptly throws her life away.
