About the Author

Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894) was one of the most important English women poets, in both range and quality. She was the youngest in an extraordinarily gifted family: her eldest brother Dante Gabriel founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and was a foremost poet and painter of the era; her other brother William became a prolific art and literary critic, editor, and memoirist; and her sister Maria went on to be a Dante scholar, respected Italian translator, author, and nun.

Rossetti wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children’s poetry throughout her life and is most famous for her poem Goblin Market. Religious devotion came to play a major role in her life and much of her work is spiritual in nature. She never married.
