Overview

“Does the road wind uphill all the way? Yes, to the very end”
Christina Rosetti

Experimental and artistic, the Pre-Raphaelite poets were fascinated by the interaction of word and image, prioritising mood and atmosphere over narrative and politics, and exploring the sound and beauty of language. Both praised and vilified for their eroticism and rebellion against cultural norms, their poems are irrepressible and unrespectable, yet powerfully committed to simplicity and sincerity – an explosive combination.

Poets include Christina Rossetti, William Morris, Gabriel Dante Rossetti, Lizzie Siddal, George Meredith, John Ruskin and Algernon Swinburne.
