The poems of Christina Rosetti (1830-94) have always been cherished for their exquisitely turned lyrical beauty and the pleasures they provide to the senses. What has become increasingly clear to contemporary readers of her work is the inner strength, the power by which it weaves the erotic with the spiritual, and its deep intimacy with the mysterious.
