A major poet, writer and painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti was seen as the dominating cultural presence in the second half of the 19th century. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite movement, revised and re-imagined Blake's project of marrying images and texts, and was a shaping influence on Modernist aesthetic ideas and practices. 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. The collection is accompanied by McGann's commentaries and notes.
For critics like John Ruskin and Walter Pater, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1892) was one of the great creative figures of the day, a painter and a poet of major stature.

In this selection Clive Wilmer has made a personal choice, emphasizing the 'pure poetry' of the lyrics at the expense of the more conventionally Victorian monologues and narratives.
The famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti was also a celebrated poet, scholar and translator, whose works influenced the European Symbolists, serving as a precursor of the Aesthetic movement. His early poetry was influenced by John Keats, whilst his later verses were characterised by the complex interlinking of thought and feeling, as demonstrated by his masterpiece, the sonnet sequence, ‘The House of Life’.

La Vita Nuova - Dante Alighieri. A translation into English by A. S. Kline. Published with illustrations by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Composed around 1294, in Italian, the Vita Nuova tells the story of Dante's encounters with and love for Beatrice, culminating in her early death and its effect upon him.
