A major poet, writer, and painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti was seen as the dominating cultural presence in the second half of the nineteenth century. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite movement, revised and reimagined 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, a leading figure in nineteenth- and twentieth-century scholarship, presents a generous selection of Rossetti’s poetry, prose, and original translations. The collection, which includes important writings unavailable in any edition of Rossetti ever printed, is accompanied by McGann’s learned and critically incisive commentaries and notes.

Jerome McGann, John Stewart Bryan University Professor at the University of Virginia, is also the author of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the Game That Must Be Lost, published by Yale University Press.

“This is the most coherent and intelligible selection of Rossetti’s work available in print, and it has the most interpretatively suggestive notes. Its inclusion of important writings not available elsewhere will expand the current understanding of Rossetti.”—Elizabeth Helsinger, University of Chicago

“I look forward to the day when the next seven volumes of this monumental edition will be lined up alongside these first three to take their prominent place on my milk-painted bookcase within easy reach for frequent consultation.”—David Latham, Journal of Pre-Rapaelite Studies
