Book Description

This outstanding anthology presents the most inspired verse of the the Pre-Raphaelite movement — a treasury of poems that resounds with a lush musicality of language. The poetry of Dante Gabriel Rossetti crowns this collection: highlights include "The Blessed Damozel," "My Sister's Sleep," and selections from The House of Life. Christina Rossetti is amply represented by "Remember," "Cousin Kate," "Song," "The Convent Threshold," and other memorable poems. Algernon Charles Swinburne's "The Garden of Proserpine" and William Morris' "The Haystack in the Floods" appear here, along with George Meredith's "Lucifer by Starlight" and selections from Modern Love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly the Rossetti Siblings, That's It August 14, 2010
Format:Paperback
I was expecting either poetry that inspired the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, such as Tennyson and the English Romantic poets, or actual poetry written by the Pre-Raphaelite artists themselves. I was hoping for the poems of Elizabeth Siddal (a Pre-Raphaelite muse, artist and poet, the wife of Dante Gabriel Rossetti).

Instead, there are only five poets' work represented: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, William Morris, and George Meredith.

Breakdown of pages:

Dante Gabriel Rossetti: Pages 1-62

Christina Rossetti: Pages 63-104

Algernon Charles Swinburne: Pages 105-154

William Morris: Pages 155-179

George Meredith: 180-186

There are 194 pages to the book, including the index. I was disappointed with the selections of poetry represented, as well. How can they anthologize Christina Rossetti and not include 'Goblin Market'?

If you're looking for a cheap edition of the poetry of Rossettis, this will service. Otherwise, of little interest.
