About Book

From Library Journal
Harrison has written a solid piece of literary history, skillfully linking Ros setti's religious and Tractarian com mitment to her use of Pre-Raphaelite methods and motifs. He demon strates that she was a conscious artist who carefully revised her work, dis counting W.M. Rossetti's portrayal of her as merely "casual and sponta neous." In making this case, and in discussing her relation to Dantean and Petrarchan traditions, Harrison uses a welter of modish critical terms. Fortunately, they fail to over whelm his exceptionally well-in formed study of a poet firmly rooted in her own era yet anticipating the self-reflexive poetic mode of our own. For academic and large public libraries.Barbara J. Dunlap, City Coll. Lib., CUNY
