Applying the methodologies of the new historicism, reception theory, and feminist criticism, Harrison provides striking interpretations of Christina Rossetti's poetry. He examines her work in relation to the traditions of medieval and Renaissance love poetry, Romanticism, Tractarianism, and Aestheticism; establishes her place among the pre-Raphaelites; relates her writing to devotional Victorian poetry; and shows how her secular love poetry reflects Dante and Petrarch.

Originally published in 1988.
