An important and often-quoted literary figure, the English poet Christina Rossetti (1830–1894) wrote some of the most beautiful and voluptuous poetry in the English language. Like Emily Dickinson, she lived in self-imposed isolation, writing of God and lost love with a sensuality and passion that seemed to emanate from the soul.
This edition of 53 works combines a number of her best-known sonnets, ballads, and shorter lyrics with her long masterpiece, the narrative fable Goblin Market. A haunting fairy tale in verse, Goblin Market was once labeled a children's poem, yet its intricate symbolism and themes of temptation, sin, and redemption mark it for an adult audience. Among other works included in this choice collection are "The Convent Threshold," "Up-hill," "Cousin Kate," "Winter: My Secret," "Maude Clare," "No, Thank You, John," and "After Death."
About the Author: Christina Georgina Rossetti was born in London on December 5, 1830. Along with being a young poet, Rossetti also became an Italian professor at King's College, University of London. Rossetti's intense devotion to religion showed in her various works, including ""Uphill,"" her most famous work. Overall, Rossetti did not publish much, but she did submit her first volume of poetry, Goblin Market and Other Poems. Christina Georgina Rossetti died in London on December 29, 1894.
