Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) was one of the greatest female writers of the nineteenth century. She was born in London into a remarkably creative family; her father was an exiled Italian revolutionary and poet and her brothers William and Dante Gabriel Rossetti were founding members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. In 1862 Rossetti published her first full collection of poetry, Goblin Market and Other Poems.
