The Rossettis In Wonderland : A Victorian Family History
The exiled Italian poet Gabriele Rossetti arrived in London in 1824 with a few letters of introduction, little money and less English. But within a single generation, he would bequeath to his new city a remarkable cultural legacy through the accomplishments of his children. There was the poet and defining Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel; the poet and religious thinker Christina, the nun and Dante Alighieri scholar Maria; and William, who combined a life of English letters and art criticism with a successful career as a civil servant.
