Excerpt from The Complete Poetical Works Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, as of most authors, would probably be to ofier a broad general view of his writ ings, and to analyze with some critical precision his rela tion to other writers, contemporary or otherwise, and the merits and defects of his performances. In this case. As in how few others, one would also have to consider in what degree his mind worked consentaneously or diversely in two several arts, the art of poetry and the art of painting. But the hand of a brother is not the fittest to undertake any work of this...

A major poet, writer and painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti was seen as the dominating cultural presence in the second half of the 19th century.

His translations are original poetical works in their own right. Jerome McGann, scholar of the 19th and 20th century, presents a selection of Rossetti's poetry, prose and original translations.

McGann asserts the enormity of Rossetti's accomplishment by pointing out that Rossetti was the central artistic and intellectual figure of his generation, whose influence extended from Swinburne to Wilde to Yeats of Pound. McGann ultimately contends that Rosetti was the major conceptual artist of his generation, whose work prefigu...

As a young poet, Dante Alighieri was at the center of a new attitude sweeping through Italy and southern France.

This edition of Dante and His Circle is based upon an imaginative recreation of a cultural and intellectual ferment at the birth of a natio...

Focusing on two of the most influential figures in the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris, this book explores new ways of considering art and literature together.

Using the concept of “translation” from one medium to another, Helsinger
