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. Yeats and the young Pound regarded him as an exemplary figure of solitary dedication to art and beauty. He called the sonnet 'a moment's monument', and his best short lyrics are instants of oppressed emotion cut free of time. In this, as in the suggestiveness of his imagery, he anticipates the French Symbolists. He can also be regarded as the founder of modern verse translation, not only for the freshness of his versions but also for his choice of poets---Villon, Cavalcanti and the young Dante. 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. He has also included a generous selection from the translations, and provided a biographical and critical introduction.

"Analyzing an array of empirical data, Janzen Kooistra shows how Rossetti's packaging for commodity consumption - by religious presses, publishers of academic editions and children's books, and makers of erotica and collectibles - influenced the reception of her work and her place in literary history."--BOOK JACKET.

Jesuit priest Gerard Manley Hopkins created verse that combined his awareness of material sensuousness with the asceticism of religious devotion. His collected poems, published posthumously in 1918, exercised a profound influence on modern poetry. This volume features all of his mature work, including "The Wreck of the Deutschland," "God's Grandeur," and "Hurrahing in Harvest."
