Christina Rossetti - I Loved You First

April 11, 2014

Jason McCrossan

Christina Rossetti was born in London in 1830, one of four children of Italian parents. She is increasingly being reconsidered a major Victorian poet. She has been compared to Emily Dickinson but the similarity is more in the choice of spiritual topics than in poetic approach, Rossetti's poetry being one of intense feelings, her technique refined within the forms established in her time.
