Christina Georgina Rossetti remains one of the most important poets in the British tradition, both for her own work and those she influenced, most notably Virginia Wolfe. Rossetti is praised for her willingness to explore different genres and poetic forms within her body of work. Thematically, her poems run the gamut from frustrated love, to religion, to the Gothic, and beyond. Her choice of form is equally eclectic. Here, a reading of some of her best work by David Shaw-Parker and Ghizela Rowe.

Who wrote this again....?
I use Audible to help me sleep, and I thought "I'll download some lovely poetry." Christina Rossetti's poetry is indeed lovely, but the fact that they prefaced every poem with the poet's name was not. It was hugely irritating. I know who wrote it - I downloaded the bleeding thing! Irritation is not at all conducive to peacefully drifting off to Dreamland. Not recommended.
