The Pre-Raphaelites and Their Circle by Lang, Cecil Y.

This useful volume presents the major works of the five leading Pre-Raphaelite poets. Foremost in the collection, and included in their entirety are D. G. Rossettis The House of Life, C. G. Rossettis Monna Innominata, William Morriss Defence of Guenevere, Swinburnes Atalanta in Calydon, and Merediths Modern Love. Complementing these major poems is a fine, generous selection of the poets shorter pieces that are typical of their work as a whole. For this second edition, Cecil Lang has substituted two early Swinburne poems, The Leper and Anactoria, for Fitzgeralds The Rubiyt of Omar Khayym. These poems, which the editor describes as shocking, show a new aspect of Swinburne not discussed previously. nbsp; nbsp; Langs Introduction describes briefly the founding of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, discusses each of the Pre-Raphaelite poets, both individually and in relation to the others, and grapples with the questions of definition of Pre-Raphaelitism and the similarities between its painting and poetry. The booknbsp;is appropriately illustrated with thirty-two works by D. G. Rossetti, John Ruskin, William H. Hunt, and other Pre-Raphaelite artists. This is the only anthology availablenbsp;that provides a representative selection of the work of these important poets. It will be indispensable to students of Victoriannbsp;poetry and appreciated by readers interested in the Pre-Raphaelites. nbsp
