Format: Hardcover
Pat Marsh makes an admirable attempt at dispelling the myths about Dante Gabriel Rossetti's legendary wife. By examining different accounts of Siddal and comparing them to what we know is the truth, she attempts to create a kind of biography. That being said, I'm not convinced that there is enough material to warrant a whole book. Most of what we know about Siddal is a mystery. The book unfortunately reads like another book about the Pre-Raphaelite art movement. Nevertheless, if you're interested in the Pre-Raphaelites, this is worth reading.

If you're a budding scholar in Pre-Raphaelitism, I would avoid this book. If you've already done some research on the life of Elizabeth Siddal, this book is an interesting read. This book doesn't follow the traditional layout of a biography, starting with birth and ending with death, but acts as a historiography: a study of what has been written about the subject. Jan Marsh looks at several biographies about Lizzie, considers the sources, the scholarly intent, and the history at the time, and considers if the biography is reliable or not. For instance, Violet Hunt's popular book on Lizzie is full of inconsistancies and has been tainted by the author's own image of who Lizzie really was.

In short, this book is worth buying, only if you have another good book on Lizzie. I recommend The Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood, also by Jan Marsh, which is a valuable reference source.
