Many books have been written about the Pre-Raphaelite movement in painting, but its manisfestation in poetry has been relatively ignored. These exemplary essays offer lively judgments on the themes and relationships of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina Rossetti, William Morris, and Algernon Charles Swinburne and provide fresh insights on their imagery and prosody. A portmanteau chapter evaluates the work of twelve other poets who were associated with the periphery of the movement.
Originally published in 1972.
