Ten Pre-Raphaelite Poems

"Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragon-fly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky:-
So this wing'd hour is dropt to us from above.
Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
This close-companioned inarticulate hour
When twofold silence was the song of love."

--- Daniel Gabriel Rossetti, Silent Noon

Description: instead of a card, why not send words! The Pre-Raphaelites took the mid-nineteenth century by storm with their paintings and poems that both harked back to the Middle Ages for inspiration and also tried to be unflinchingly honest in their ‘truth to Nature’.

With an introduction by Dr Ruth Robbins the following selection of poems offers an unforgettable journey through darkness and light, sensuousness and innocence in the poems by Christina Rossetti, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Algernon Swinburne.

Details: includes poetry pamphlet, envelope and co-ordinating bookmark with space for your own personal message. 22 pages.

  Free UK delivery if you spend over £30.
