Most widely held works by William Michael Rossetti
Adonais by Percy Bysshe Shelley( )

46 editions published between 1821 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron are generally considered the second generation of the great English Romantic poets. Shelley was an admirer of Keats's work, and though a few of the letters they exchanged reveal the somewhat rocky nature of their friendship, Shelley graciously invited Keats to join him at his residence at Pisa as his health declined. Keats, instead, removed himself to Rome, where he succumbed to tuberculosis in a villa on the Spanish Steps. Immediately after hearing of his death, Shelley began to compose Adonaïs, an elegy to Keats that is now considered among Shelley's best and most renowned works. Along with Shelley's achingly beautiful tribute, this 1891 volume features brief memoirs of both Shelley and Keats, cancelled passages of the poem, and extensive analysis by English writer and critic William Michael Rossetti

A shadow of Dante : being an essay towards studying himself, his world, and his pilgrimage by Maria Francesca Rossetti( Book )

26 editions published between 1871 and 1914 in English and Undetermined and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Any acquaintance with a work so sublime must needs be better than none. A shadow may win the gaze of some who never looked upon the substance.' In this scholarly introduction to the Divine Comedy, Maria Francesca Rossetti (1827-76) urges readers not to be put off by Dante's difficult language and befuddling cosmology. Deploying prose summaries alongside translated extracts of the poem, she takes the reader on a tour through Dante's world, from the first shadowy appearance of Virgil to the pilgrimage through Paradise. Rossetti also illuminates many aspects of the poem usually considered impenetrable by its English readership. Among them are the geography of the landscape, the connotations of the most significant Italian images, and the incorporation of the classical vision of Hell into the Christian version. Maps, textual annotations and thorough linguistic notes support her exegesis, which, though originally published in 1871, remains one of the finest available today
