5.0 out of 5 stars

on 25 November 1999
This scholarly biography gives an insight into the thinking of the Pre-Raphaelite circle, particularly with respect to symbolism and medievalism in Pre-Raphaelite art. Jan Marsh has written a fascinating account of the life of DG Rossetti, the most charismatic personality of the group if not the most technically brilliant. At the same time, she offers insights into the lives of Ruskin, Millais, Hunt, Elizabeth Siddal and the Anglo-Italian Rossetti family. In the middle of the Victorian era, Rossetti was anything but a Victorian. Like Oscar Wilde, he put his talent into his work and reserved his genius for his life. The biography is therefore very much worth reading.
