About the Author:

Dinah Roe was born and raised in Upstate New York and educated at Vassar College and University College London. She is the author of Christina Rossetti’s Faithful Imagination, and has edited and introduced Christina Rossetti’s Selected Poems and the Pre-Raphaelites: From Rossetti to Ruskin for Penguin Classics. She lives and works in London.

Review:

'The decadent glamour of Dante Gabriel's life, and the quiet renunciation of his sister Christina's, may be well known, but in The Rossettis In Wonderland Dinah Roe brings their siblings, Maria and William Michael, into view. Roe explains that Maria's decision, at 42, to enter an Anglican sisterhood was bravely self-defining. She also shows how William Michael negotiated the criticism of his errant older brother, writing to him on the occasion of the macabre burial of his wife and model, Lizzie Siddal, "you have acted right on both occasions." An intertwining family biography is a hard task but Roe brilliantly makes a larger picture to frame the genius of Dante Gabriel and Christina.' The Times 20111015

Book Description Haus Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The exiled Italian poet Gabriele Rossetti arrived in London in 1824 with a few letters of introduction, little money and less English. But within one generation, he would bequeath his new city with a remark- able cultural legacy through the accomplishments of his children. There was the poet and Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel, the poet and religious thinker Christina, the nun and Dante Alighieri scholar Maria, and William, who combined a life of English letters with a successful career in finance. The lives and achievements of the Rossettis are placed within the wider context of the artistic, literary and spiritual communities that inspired them and that they shaped in their turn. They worked with each other and in collaboration with the most famous figures of their day - the Barrett-Brownings, Tennyson, Swinburne and Ruskin - as well as within significant groups like the Pre-Raphaelites, Anglo-Catholics, Freemasons and suffragists.
