Product Description

Dinah Roe's introduction examines the origins of the movement, its incredible scope and diversity, and the resistance the Pre-Raphaelite poets experienced as they struggled to reshape the artistic and literary world of Victorian BritainThis edition also contains a chronology, notes, and suggested further readingIncludes pieces by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, Christina Rossetti, Elizabeth Siddal, Algernon Charles Swinburne and William Allingham, among othersDinah Roe is a lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire and a freelance writer whose interests include the nineteenth-century novel, Victorian poetry, and women's writing. Born and raised in the United States, she holds degrees from Vassar College (USA) and University College London. She has written Christina Rossetti's Faithful Imagination (2006), and is currently working on a book about the Rossetti family and their circle. She lives in London.The Pre-Raphaelite Movement began in 1848, and experienced its heyday in the 1860s and 1870s. Influenced by the then little-known Keats and Blake, as well as Wordsworth, Shelley and Coleridge, Pre-Raphaelite poetry 'etherialized sensation' (in the words of Antony Harrison), and popularized the notion ofl'art pour l'art - art for art's sake. Where Victorian realist novels explored the grit and grime of the Industrial Revolution, Pre-Raphaelite poems concentrated on more abstract themes of romantic love, artistic inspiration and sexuality. Later they attracted Aesthetes and Decadents like Oscar Wilde, Aubrey Beardsley and Ernest Dowson, not to mention Gerard Manley Hopkins and W.B. Yeats.
