He uses this in the poem, when talking about the curse that is upon the Lady of Shallot. One example is, 'The mirror crack'd from side to side'. This makes the reader realise there is something unusual and mysterious about the life of the Lady of Shallot. The reader may start to wonder what is happening, and by this point in the poem they have probably realised that the Lady of Shallot is cursed. It continues adding to an already mysterious atmosphere and subtly reminds the reader that she is cursed therefore continuing the theme and building the picture in the readers mind.

However if you were to interpret the poem to demonstrate a parent-child relationship, then the poem can be taken in a new, different way. Consequently ?age? would represent a parent and ?youth? would represent a child. You could say that due to the fact that the view is so stereotypical that the poem is written by someone young, because they have not experienced what it is like to be old.
