In this excerpt from "The Lady of Shalott" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, how does the repetition of words in the first four lines affect the narrative?
She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces thro' the room,
She saw the water lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look'd down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.

It hints that the fate of the subject was inevitable.
It implies that the subject's actions were monotonous.
It suggests that the narrative is about to end.
It builds a sense of anticipation and mystery.
Im pretty sure its "It builds a sense of anticipation and mystery."
"the lady of shallot" focuses on how the lady is eternally trapped in her castle, and that releasing herself from this trap bears great consequences. she can only look outside through her mirror, which she does quite often. notice how the repetition of "she" comes to an abrupt stop when she looks outside of the window directly, instead of through the mirror. i'd say it's the second choice (monotonous), though i'm sure you've submitted an answer by now. (i'm just geeking out, i love this poem!)
