Item Description...
Christina Rossetti is unique among Victorian poets for the sheer range of her subject matter and the variety of her verse form. This first fully annotated collection, based on the definitive texts, brings together fantasy poems such as "Goblin Market," terrifyingly vivid verses for children, love lyrics, sonnets, hymns, and ballads, as well as the vast body of her devotional poetry. Weaving connections between love and death, triumph and loss, heavenly joys and earthly pleasures, Rossetti's poems startle the imagination with their extraordinary truth, beauty, and intensity.
This edition, the only one available in paperback, incorporates contextual notes as well as notes on the text and language, an introduction, and a chronology of Rossetti's life and work.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), sister of the poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, was educated at home and shared her family's intellectual interests. Ill-health ended her work as a governess and later made her an invalid. Her poetry was first published in 1850 in the Pre-Raphaelite magazine, The Germ, and several volumes of poetry followed, demonstrating an extraordinary emotional and technical range.
Betty Sue Flowers is Professor of English at the University of Texas at Austin.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thorough  Apr 19, 2008
This 1,221 page edition is not easy to carry around with you, but it contains all of Rossetti's extensive poetry, plus a helpful introduction and extensive endnotes. If you want to delve beyond her "greatest hits" like "Goblin Market" and "Up-Hill," you'll find it all there, including her less popular devotional poems.
 
Poetry is alive!!!!!  Apr 6, 2008
Thank God that we can still find poetry, and therefore beauty, in the world today!!!!!
 
Was what I wanted  Mar 14, 2006
The Complete Poems was exactly what I wanted - a complete collection of Christina Rossetti's poems, with some straightforward notes (of varying levels of detail) about each poem. It has a short, useful general introduction, and a simple/pleasing paperback layout. No fireworks in the night sky, but exactly what I wanted.
 
An excellent volume  Nov 12, 2003
This is a comprehensive volume of the work from the greatest woman poet ever to write in the English Language. It contains all of her poems, properly organised into the correct categories (and a decent index!). It doesn't have any of the prose work like Speaking Likenesses or Face of the Deep, but for her skilled, deep, and beautiful poetry this publication is essential.
 
Fairy tales, feminism, and faith  Jan 10, 2003
This is the first paperback edition of Rossetti's complete poems. The book is rather daunting at over 1200 pages, and nearly 200 of those pages are textual notes. The textual notes are great for those interested in the historical context of Rossetti's work, biblical influence on her work, and some relevant excerpts from her letters and her brother's notes to her complete poems.

The variety and bulk of her work are the most impressive aspects of this volume. The books published during her lifetime included a nursery rhyme book, a book of devotional verses, two books beginning with long fairy tales, and a book beginning with a children's pageant of the months which was widely performed during her lifetime. All of these books are included here, as well as all her other published and unpublished poems. Some of the unpublished poems include a moving series of love poems written in Italian, with translation in the textual notes.

If you are incredibly interested in Rossetti's life and poetry, absolutely buy this. For the casual fan of her poetry, I would recommend buying a smaller book such as the Everyman Paperback Classics collection of her work.
