This little volume of Christina Rossetti's poetry is simply sublime! While it is not a complete collection of her beautiful poetry, it does contain some examples of her finest work.

Christina Georgina Rossetti, one of the most important women poets writing in nineteenth-century England, was born in London December 5, 1830, to Gabriele and Frances (Polidori) Rossetti. Although her fundamentally religious temperament was closer to her mother's, this youngest member of a remarkable family of poets, artists, and critics inherited many of her artistic tendencies from her father.
