Episode 9: Christina Rossetti - From Storm to Calm

Donna and Tom discuss the Victiorian poet, Christina Rossetti. A member of the remarkable Rossetti family (her brother was the painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood) her most famous poem is probably "Goblin Market", which is still in print today. She spent much of her life unhappy, in emotional turmoil, wrestling with her personal demons, but always creating prolific amounts of poetry. As poets (especially women poets) of the Victorian era go, her name is one of the most well known.
