I am definitely going to buy a print copy of this wonderful book of poetry. I first became intrigued with Christina Rossetti last year, in 2015, when I chanced upon a penguin publication of her poem, The Goblin Market as part of its 80th anniversary celebrations. I could only imagine the Victorian circumstances and way of living that forced such brilliant women like Rossetti to seek their creative outlet through poetry. As a new Kindle reader, among the very first books that I searched for were Rossetti's complete works of poetry and this book is a treasurer's delight. There are about 230 poems. I could read them all one each day and keep doing it for the rest of my life. Bravo, Christina. ( )

If you like the poet, this is a handsome volume done up with decoration and typeface that mimic the period very well. ( )

A nice selection of Ms Rossetti's classic. The layout is nice and the print is agreeable, but there are no scholarly notes to distract a reader with. The book often only quotes parts of poems, which gets annoying when you keep seeing the same title over and over, but it gives a great range of poetry from the religious verse to love poetry to children's rhymes. She has the most marvelous ear and can pull off some rhymes that most normally can't. ( )
