About the Author

The poems of Christina Rossetti (1830-94) have always been cherished for their exquisitely turned lyrical beauty and the pleasures they provide to the senses. What has become increasingly clear to contemporary readers of her work is its inner strength, the power by which it weaves the erotic with the spiritual, and its deep intimacy with the mysterious.

My library has this same copy of Christina Rossettie's poetry, and I had checked it out on multiple occasions. I would recommend skipping around in this book, rather than trying to read straight through, as many of her lyrical poems are about death, and they are easier to read whem mixed in with the beautiful sacred poems and the narrative poems. Christina Rossetti's poetry is definitely worth reading! The book is small and easy to carry around with you.
