The Poetry of Christina Rossetti

Christina Rossetti is one of the most significant and enduring poets of the 19th century. Best known as the author of intriguing, haunting and sometimes troubling lyric poetry, she published three collections of verse during her lifetime and contributed poetry to some of the most popular literary journals of the period. Her poetry is important because it reflects and critiques some of the major intellectual, political and cultural trends of Victorian times; but its drastic vision is also one that can speak to us directly, inviting us to participate in its provocations and pleasures. .
