Exquisite Facimile Edition. Highly Recommended. By Christina Rossetti. Art by Florence Harrison. Beautifully illustrated with 16 full-color paintings and scores of line drawings by an artist inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites, a superb artist but due to a more limited output, far less known than her contemporaries like Rackham, Dulac and Charles Robinson, whose b&w work may have inspired Harrison. From one of the finest poets of the Victorian era, the sister of artist D.G. Rossetti. Combines two classic collections of poetry: Goblin Market and Other Poems and Shorter Poems. The centerpiece is Rossetti's most famous work, "Goblin Market," a haunting fairy tale.

Details

Beautifully illustrated with 16 full-color paintings and scores of line drawings by an artist inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites, a superb artist but due to a more limited output, far less known than her contemporaries like Rackham, Dulac and Charles Robinson, whose b&w work may have inspired Harrison. From one of the finest poets of the Victorian era, the sister of artist D.G. Rossetti. Combines two classic collections of poetry: Goblin Market and Other Poems and Shorter Poems. The centerpiece is Rossetti's most famous work, "Goblin Market," a haunting fairy tale.

For children, the narrative fable offers a romp through a fantasy world. For older readers, the market's lusciously described fruits represent the temptations of self-indulgence, rendering the poem a moving moral allegory of pleasure, sacrifice, and redemption.

This volume also includes such popular poems as "The Hour and the Ghost," "My Dream," "Mirage," "Twilight Calm," and 32 other wondrous meditations on love and loss, death and remembrance, and nature and spirituality. It offers a splendid introduction to the glories of Rossetti's work as well as a lovely keepsake edition for those already acquainted with the deeply spiritual poet.

Bound in black cloth with red gilt-embossed cover and spine titles, and a full color jacket.
