Alyne Winter | 30 comments The Pre-Raphaelites were not only painters but poets and their art was often based on literary themes. I think Rossetti was High Goth. What do you think?

I agree Alyne. I think Goblin Market has some gothic qualities to it. Also her brother's poem Jenny I believe was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. That one therefore is gothic too.

Mary Bokkon | 8 comments I absolutely agree. My favorite painters and my favorite genre of novels. :-)

Denise (dulcinea3) | 154 comments I adore the art, but haven't read any of the poetry, as I can recall.
