Overview

An anthology of the great and influential Pre-Raphaelite poets.

The Pre-Raphaelites experienced their heyday in the 1860s and 1870s. Influenced by such poets as Keats, Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, and Coleridge, they popularized the notion of l’art pour l’art-art for art’s sake. Featuring selections by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina Rossetti, William Morris, Elizabeth Siddal, Algernon Charles Swinburne, and William Allingham, among others, and celebrating romantic love, artistic inspiration, and sexuality, this volume shines a light on an important chapter in British poetry and maps the Pre- Raphaelite movement’s efforts to reshape the artistic and literary world of Victorian Britain.
