The Complete Poems of Christina Rossetti
The Complete Poems of Christina Rossetti: A Variorum Edition: Volume II | Christina Rossetti
13 posts | 2 read | 9 to read
Born in 1830, Christina Rossetti began composing verse at the age of eleven and continued to write for the remaining fifty-three years of her life. Her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti, himself a poet and painter, soon recognized her genius and urged her to publish her poems. By the time of her death in 1894, Christina had written more than eleven hundred poems and had published over nine hundred of them. Although she is regarded as the greatest woman poet of the Victorian period, there has not been until now and authoritative edition of her poetry. In this second volume of the three-volume The Complete Poems of Christina Rossetti, R.W. Crump continues the editorial standards she established n Volume I, published in 1979. She gives the reader a comprehensive text with notes revealing Christinas process of composition and revision and her painstaking concern for the technical details of her work. The variant readings in the notes are taken from extant manuscripts, individual poems as published or privately printed before being incorporated into her published collections, and all the English and American editions of her poems through William Michael Rossettis The Poetical Works of Christina Georgina Rossetti (1904). A special feature of both Volumes I and II is a complete list of holographs and their locations. Volume II contains Sing-Song: A Nursery Rhyme Book (1872), A Pageant and Other Poems (1881), and Verses (1893), as well as the poems added to these volumes after their original publication. Volume III contains poems Christina published but did not include in any of her collections as well as poems that have not previously appeared in print.

Pickpick

This poem came to my mind today for no apparent reason. Probably the best known of Rossetti's oeuvre and a favourite of mine. Some of her work is a little maudlin ... it's pretty safe to say Christina probably wasn't the most fun at the party. Her life was kinda tragic but her poetry is very much worth exploring.

BiblioLitten This brought back memories of college. Love it😊💜 4y
