Christina Rossetti Summary

Christina Rossetti: A Biography by Frances Thomas

Why is Christina Rossetti, probably the major woman poet of Victorian Britain, so invisible today? This is the central question addressed in this biography. Rossetti, author of Goblin Market , My Heart Is Like a Singing Bird and In the Deep Midwinter has often been overshadowed by her brother Dante Gabriel. Drawing on many sources, this study enables the reader to piece together a more complete picture of this woman whose nature was passionate and contradictory.

Christina Rossetti Reviews

Frances Thomas has written an exemplary biography of this exasperating woman. * SPECTATOR *
Frances Thomas is sensitive and sympathetic at all points, and has an approach entirely of her own. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
I choose Frances Thomas's convincing study as my book of the year because she has illuminated the character and life of the woman and brought me back to the joy of reading. * THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
Thomas uses a fascinating range of lesser known poems to reveal both Rossetti's remarkable talent and her passionate frustrated nature. * COUNTRY LIVING *
