My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is a watered shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thickest fruit. --From A Birthday From the sensuous, deliciously scary, and popular Goblin Market to the delicate and musical Sing-Song, Christina Rossetti's verses feature earthy, almost tactile images. As the sole woman among the Pre-Raphaelites, her work has a unique feminine perspective. Among the selections by Jan Marsh, author of an acclaimed biography of Christina and her brother, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, are At Home, Confluents, Maude Clare, and Songs for Strangers and Pilgrims.

Christina Rossetti Books, Christina Rossetti poetry book Commonplace Authors: Christina Georgina Rossetti
Publisher: Hesperus Press
Published Date: 2005
Categories: Fiction
This is a delightful novella of love, matrimony, and sisterhood firmly in the tradition of Jane Austen, and displaying all the imaginative flair and linguistic prowess that distinguish Christina Rossetti's best-loved verse. When William Charlmont is lost at sea, his devoted wife lies dying in childbirth and charges Catherine, their eldest daughter, to await his return. Years later, and now in her thirties, Catherine remains faithful to her promise, resigning herself to a life of spinsterhood. Her two sisters, however, are under no such obligation, and while Lucy loves and loses from afar, the carefree Jane resolves to make a prosperous marriage and become a lady of fortune. Commonplace is a charmingly witty tale of the tortuous path a girl must take to secure a suitable match. One of the most important of the Victorian women poets, and a member of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Christina Rossetti is best known as the author of Goblin Market and Other Poems.

Christina Rossetti is recognized as the leading woman poet of the 19th century in England. Despite recent attention to her life - in the form of three new biographies - and her poetry, Rossetti's prose works remain largely inaccessible to students and scholars. This volume comprises selected prose by Rosetti, presenting the prose works in three modes: expository prose, including her two essays on Dante and two of her contributions to the Imperial Dictionary of Universal Biography, on Leopardi and on Petrarch; fiction, including the novella Maude, several of her short stories, and Speaking Likenesses; and judicious excerpts from her devotional prose, which consists of six volumes published over a period of 18 years.

Poem of the day

Oscar Wilde Poem
Le Reveillon
 by Oscar Wilde

THE sky is laced with fitful red,
The circling mists and shadows flee,
The dawn is rising from the sea,
Like a white lady from her bed.

And jagged brazen arrows fall
Athwart the feathers of the night,
And a long wave of yellow light
