Poems and Prose
(Christina Rossetti, Jan Marsh (Editor)
Rossetti was considered by many of her contemporaries to be Britain's finest living poet; technically virtuous and full of mystic yearning, her poetry ranges from the immensely popular "Goblin Market" to ballads, love lyrics, sonnets, and religious poetry. This long awaited edition recalls a poet of breathtaking variety and strange magic to a public that has too long neglected her.
