This outstanding anthology presents the most inspired verse of the the Pre-Raphaelite movement -- a treasury of poems that resounds with a lush musicality of language. The poetry of Dante Gabriel Rossetti crowns this collection: highlights include The Blessed Damozel, My Sister's Sleep, and selections from The House of Life. Christina Rossetti is amply represented by Remember, Cousin Kate, Song, The Convent Threshold, and other memorable poems. Algernon Charles Swinburne's The Garden of Proserpine and William Morris' The Haystack in the Floods appear here, along with George Meredith's Lucifer by Starlight and selections from Modern Love.
