Publisher's Description

A captivating selection of enduring verse by one of the Victorian era?s most beloved poets

Christina Rossetti is unique among Victorian poets for the sheer range of her subject matter and the variety of her verse forms. Weaving connections between love and death, triumph and loss, heavenly joys and earthly pleasures, Rossetti?s poems startle the imagination with their extraordinary truth, beauty, and intensity. This first fully annotated collection, based on the definitive texts, brings together love lyrics, sonnets, hymns, ballads, the vast body of her devotional poetry, and fantasy poems like ?Goblin Market,? Rossetti?s terrifyingly vivid verses for children.

Author Bio

Christina Rossetti (1830–1894) was an English poet whose work is imbued with religious themes and an undercurrent of eroticism and feminist idealism. At the height of her popularity in the late nineteenth century, she was considered on par with fellow Victorian poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Dinah Roe is an independent scholar whose interests include the nineteenth-century novel, Victorian poetry, and women’s writing.
