So much to love in this keepsake volume: lush prints of Pre-Raphaelite portraits, inclusion of cherished literary muses such as the Brontë sisters and Christina Rossetti, the overall feel of sitting in a warm garden, lyrical expressions of a woman's heart. All true, but I will most be grateful for the introduction to Alice Meynell, especially for "A Shattered Lute".

A few gems, but not much that blew me away. Overall, pretty good if you're in the mood for Victorian romantic-style poetry (which I mostly wasn't, apparently). The accompanying paintings were a nice touch.

My favorite poetry book of all time. So enchanting. Do wish it didn't just contain European people though!
