The Works of Christina Rossetti

Author: Christina Georgina Rossetti
Publisher: Wordsworth Editions
ISBN: 1853264296
Release Date: 1995-01
Genre: Poetry

With an Introduction and Notes by Katherine McGowran. Christina Rossetti is widely regarded as the most considerable woman poet in England before the twentieth century. No reading of nineteenth century poetry can be complete without attention to this prolific and popular poet. Rosetti's inner life dominates her poetry, exploring loss and unattainable hope. Her divine poems have a freshness and toughness of thought, while many of her love poems are erotic, and as often express love for women as for men. The varied threads of Rossetti's concerns are drawn together in what is perhaps her greatest poem, the strange and ambiguous 'Goblin Market'.

The Penguin Book of Victorian Verse

Publisher: Penguin UK
ISBN: 9780141958675
Release Date: 1998-10-19
Genre: Poetry

Daniel Karlin has selected poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria, (1837-1901). Giving pride of place to Tennyson, Robert Browning, and Christina Rossetti, the volume offers generous selections from other major poets such asArnold, Emily Bronte, Hardy and Hopkins, and makes room for several poem-sequences in their entirety. It is wonderful, too, in its discovery and inclusion of eccentric, dissenting, un-Victorian voices, poets who squarely refuse to 'represent' their period. It also includes the work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Meredith, James Thomson and Augusta Webster.

My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is a watered shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thickest fruit. --From A Birthday From the sensuous, deliciously scary, and popular Goblin Market to the delicate and musical Sing-Song, Christina Rossetti's verses feature earthy, almost tactile images. As the sole woman among the Pre-Raphaelites, her work has a unique feminine perspective. Among the selections by Jan Marsh, author of an acclaimed biography of Christina and her brother, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, are At Home, Confluents, Maude Clare, and Songs for Strangers and Pilgrims.

The Pre Raphaelites From Rossetti to Ruskin

Genre: Poetry

The Pre-Raphaelite Movement began in 1848, and experienced its heyday in the 1860s and 1870s. Influenced by the then little-known Keats and Blake, as well as Wordsworth, Shelley and Coleridge, Pre-Raphaelite poetry 'etherialized sensation' (in the words of Antony Harrison), and popularized the notion ofl'art pour l'art - art for art's sake. Where Victorian realist novels explored the grit and grime of the Industrial Revolution, Pre-Raphaelite poems concentrated on more abstract themes of romantic love, artistic inspiration and sexuality. Later they attracted Aesthetes and Decadents like Oscar Wilde, Aubrey Beardsley and Ernest Dowson, not to mention Gerard Manley Hopkins and W.B. Yeats.

Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) was born in London of Italian parents. With her vivid imagination and innate talent for composing verse, she was an accomplished poet by her late teens. By 1866 she was established as a leading poet of her day. Prematurely in 1871 she was stricken with Graves Disease, becoming increasingly preoccupied with the relationship between earth and heaven, life and death. She had inherited a devout Anglican faith from her mother, and from this point on her verse became almost entirely religious. This volume focuses on her poetry marking the feasts and fasts of the Christian year. Divided into sections including Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter, it is designed to be dipped into at the appropriate times, an aid to gentle reflection throughout the year.
