A companion to Victorian poetry ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
"This Companion brings together specially commissioned essays by distinguished international scholars that reflect both the diversity of Victorian poetry and the variety of critical approaches that illuminate it." "The volume opens with an introductory essay on Victorian poetics by Carol Christ that offers a commanding overview of the whole period. The remaining contributions are organized into three parts: the first surveys the variety of schools and styles in Victorian poetry; in the second, the focus shifts from the form and content of the poetry to the means of its production and distribution; the final part positions Victorian verse in its contexts and explores its interactions with dominant cultural discourses."--BOOK JACKET.
Victorian women poets ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 420 libraries worldwide
The specially commissioned essays in Victorian Women Poets offer revisionary readings of canonical poets and bring into focus re-discovered writers. The volume both engages critically with the political and aesthetic agenda behind the project of recovery, and also presents a pioneering approach to reading poets who have slipped out of the canon. The work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti is re-assessed and given surprising and innovative literary, political and intellectual contexts that will change the way we interpret their poetry. Writers of emerging significance, such as Theodosia Garrow Trollope, Augusta Webster, Mathilde Blind, Michael Field and Margaret Veley, are given prominence in groundbreaking analysis that situates their writing within the wider debates of the period. The themes interwoven throughout the essays--literary history and canonicity, political poetics, nationhood, print culture, and genre--provide a radically new understanding of Victorian women's poetry that maps an agenda for future research.
The afterlife of Christina Rossetti by Alison Chapman ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
How do we begin to talk about Christina Rossetti in history? While she has been rapidly emerging from the shadows of New Critical neglect, in her afterlife as a historical personage and woman poet Christina Rossetti continues to haunt the reader. Yet the attempt to access the dead author (superlatively mythologised as feminine - muse, saint, virgin, sister, Jael) leads us further away from the material, historical origin of the writing. As earnestly as she is recovered, she vanishes from our critical narrative. Indeed, the signature 'Christina Rossetti' is a trope, a displaced subjectivity, emptied of history, frustrating new historical reclamations. This book constructs Christina Rossetti's afterlife in a multiple sense through an analysis of the posthumous in her work, the construction of the trope 'Christina Rossetti' by her brothers, and a reception history. The afterlife of Christina Rossetti begins by asking what it costs to give voice to silenced and neglected women poets. The study then moves through the field of her after-effects - biographies and reminiscences, visual representations, manuscript and editorial revisions, the critical consumption of 'Goblin Market' - to offer new figures of reading the signature 'Christina Rossetti' which refuse to exorcise her ghostly presence.

A Rossetti family chronology by Alison Chapman ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 124 libraries worldwide
Based on a rich range of primary sources and manuscripts, A Rossetti Family Chronology breaks exciting new ground. Focusing on Christina and Dante Gabriel, the Chronology demonstrates the interconnectedness of their friendships and creativity, giving information about literary composition and artistic output, publication and exhibition, reviews, finances, relationships, health, reading habits and gallery attendance, and detailing literary and artistic influences. The Chronology also includes full material on other immediate family members (William Michael and Maria Francesca Rossetti, Elizabeth Siddal, Lucy Madox Brown), family friends (the Heimanns, Scotts and Browns), the Pre-Raphaelites and other literary and artistic friends, and consumers of the Rossettis' output (buyers, publishers, reviewers). Such a broad scope evinces the vibrant intellectual and artistic community in which the Rossetti's lived, as well as the family's important contribution to the major artistic, literary and cultural movements of the nineteenth century. Drawing on many unpublished sources, including family letters and diaries, this new volume in the Author Chronologies series will be of value to all students and scholars of the Rossettis.
