EvaGreenWeb: ICYMI: Eva Green Reads an excerpt of Up-Hill By Christina Rossetti

Eve_Castle: When I am dead, my dearest, Sing no sad songs for me; Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree: Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet; And if thou wilt, remember, And if thou wilt, forget. ~Christina Rossetti, Song

OWC_Oxford: Christina Rossetti is perhaps the most contradictory of the great Victorian poets. She writes of the world's beauty, but fears that it may be deceptive, even deadly. She is a religious poet, but much of her work is driven by uncertainty.

BMSEnglish: This is a great resource to dip into. Our English Literature students study Christina Rossetti as part of the Poetry unit.

blooms_jewel: ~ Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts & no one to thank. -Christina Rossetti
