Born in London in 1828, of British and Italian parentage, DGR became a pupil of Ford Madox Brown and later formed the PRB to effect a revolution in English painting and poetry. His work in both forms was detailed, symbolic, mystical, and sometimes erotic. He was involved with two of the PRB `stunners', first Lizzie Siddal who died of a laudanum overdose, then Jane Morris. Notoriously, DGR buried his poetry manuscripts with Siddal, but later exhumed them. Latterly involved with William Morris's decorative arts firm, DRG died - a near recluse - in 1882, a Romantic Victorian revolutionary.

This, the first full-scale biography of Rossetti, reinstates her in her rightful place as a luminary among Victorian poets. Like Emily Dickinson, with whom she is often compared, Rossetti is a poet's poet who wrote some of the Victorian period's most lush, most original, and also some of its most restrained poetry. Because of the new appreciation for this highly accomplished work, and also because, through her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina is so closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites and their superb art and bohemian lives, there had been a resurgence of interest in this enigm

A timely aspect of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Marsh not only explores the meticulously painted romantic subjects and narratives but also describes the women who were associated with the movement models, wives and lovers, as well as women painters (and one photographer) and shows their very definitive influence on this elegant period in English art and literature. The profuse and beautiful illustrations and the many fine drawings set off a text which carefully relates the descriptive chapter headings to the important literary references of prose and poetry. The chapter titled ``Sorceresses''

The Pre-Raphaelites: Their Lives in Letters and Diaries is part of an engaging series of books that examines the lives and works of artists and writers through their writings--their letters and journals. (Past subjects of this series have included Gauguin, Wilde, Woolf, Monet, and the Bront¨s.) Because they were copious writers, the Pre-Raphaelites and their models, friends, and lovers provide excellent fodder for this type of exploration. Their association, which formed in England in the mid-19th century, included such luminaries as Christina, Dante Gabriel, and William Rossetti, John R
