Christina Rossetti (1830-94) was an English poet. Sister to the great Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and niece of Byron’s physician John Polidori (author of The Vampyre), Christina wrote poetry from the age of seven. The publication of her most famous collection, Goblin Market and Other Poems (1862), made her a household name and secured her status alongside Elizabeth Barrett Browning as one of the most influential female voices in nineteenth-century poetry.

As her family connections might suggest, Christina Rossetti’s work displays not only a strong religious sentiment but also a profound love of fairytale and folklore, laced with a dash of the macabre.
