About the Authors
  • This book was first published in 1929 and contains a selection of poetry and prose from two prominent members of the Pre-Raphaelites, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris. The selections are arranged chronologically in most instances, highlighting the development of style and subject matter in each author's oeuvre. A generous introduction is supplied, outlining the ideology of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and providing short biographical sketches of both Rossetti and Morris, and critical notes are included for several of the works. This volume will appeal to anyone wishing to trace the different interpretations of the Pre-Raphaelite movement by two of its most famous literary figures.
