From the Publisher"Though their art has been intensely studied in numerous exhibitions and monographs over the last several decades, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) has never been wholeheartedly embraced, its critics finding the work amateurish, provincial, or representative f English bizarrerie. Editor Prettejohn states that one purpose of the 17 essays collected here is to establish the movement as the first modernist avant-garde, with all the elements of redefinition of tradition and purposeful assertion that the term suggests."
"Ambitious and challenging, The Cambridge Companion to the Pre- Raphaelites achieves the impossible task of a somewhat comprehensive view of Pre-Raphaelite poetry and painting, thus making a solid contribution to Pre- Raphaelite studies and art history."
