Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology (Dover Thrift Editions)

by

Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology (Dover Thrift Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This outstanding anthology presents the finest works of all the major — and some of the minor — poets of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a group of painters and poets, formed in London in 1848. Rejecting the academicism that they associated with Raphael and the High Renaissance, they endorsed a freer and less rigid approach to their subjects, emphasizing an adherence to the simplicity of nature. Pre-Raphaelite verse is characterized by a lush musicality of language, sensuality often combined with a moral and religious undertone, and an intense exploration of psychological states. This volume is devoted primarily to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, George Meredith, and William Morris, but also includes selections by Watts-Dunton, Elizabeth Siddal Rossetti, William Allingham, and others. Of major importance in the history of English literature, these works are also perennial favorites with poetry lovers worldwide.

Synopsis:

Poetry of Dante Gabriel Rossetti crowns this outstanding collection: highlights include "The Blessed Damozel," "My Sister's Sleep," and selections from The House of Life. Also includes Christina Rossetti's "Remember," "Cousin Kate," and "Song," plus Swinburne, and more
