Poetry, pictures, and popular publishing the illustrated gift book and Victorian visual culture, 1855-1875 by Lorraine Janzen Kooistra( )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing eminent Rossetti scholar Lorraine Janzen Kooistra demonstrates the cultural centrality of a neglected artifact: the Victorian illustrated gift book. Turning a critical lens on "drawing-room books" as both material objects and historical events, Kooistra reveals how the gift book's visual/verbal form mediated "high" and popular art as well as book and periodical publication. A composite text produced by many makers, the poetic gift book was designed for domestic space and a female audience; its mode of publication marks a significant moment in the history of authorship, reading, and publishing. With rigorous attention to the gift book's aesthetic and ideological features, Kooistra analyzes the contributions of poets, artists, engravers, publishers, and readers and shows how its material form moved poetry into popular culture. Drawing on archival and periodical research, she offers new readings of Eliza Cook, Adelaide Procter, and Jean Ingelow and shows the transatlantic reach of their verses. Boldly re-situating Tennyson's works within the gift-book economy he dominated, Kooistra demonstrates how the conditions of corporate authorship shaped the production and reception of the laureate's verses at the peak of his popularity. Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing changes the map of poetry's place--in all its senses--in Victorian everyday life and consumer culture"--
Christina Rossetti and illustration : a publishing history by Lorraine Janzen Kooistra( Book )
9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Christina Rossetti and Illustration: A Publishing History maps the production and reception of Rossetti's illustrated poetry, devotional prose, and work for children, both in the author's lifetime and in posthumous twentieth-century reprints." "Lorraine Janzen Kooistra's reading of Rossetti's illustrated works reveals for the first time the visual-verbal aesthetic that was fundamental to Rossetti's poetics. Her thorough archival research brings to light new information on how Rossetti's commitment to illustration and attitudes toward copyright and control influenced her transactions with publishers and the books they produced. Janzen Kooistra also tracks Rossetti's reception in the twentieth century through a complex web of illustrated books produced for a wide range of audiences." "Analyzing an array of empirical data, Janzen Kooistra shows how Rossetti's packaging for commodity consumption - by religious presses, publishers of academic editions and children's books, and makers of erotica and collectibles - influenced the reception of her work and her place in literary history."--BOOK JACKET

"The Culture of Christina Rossetti offers a radical rethinking of Rossetti's place in the Victorian world of art, literature, and ideas. Examining her poetry, fiction, and nonfiction from a variety of theoretical perspectives, these essays solicit a new understanding of Rossetti as an artist actively engaged in Victorian developments in aesthetics, theology, science, economics, and politics."--Jacket
