Rossetti, Christina Georgina (18301894)

Rossetti, Christina Georgina, poetess, born in London, sister of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and of kindred temper with her brother, but with distinct qualities of her own; her first volume, called the “Goblin-Market,” contains a number of very beautiful short poems; she exhibits, along with a sense of humour, a rare pathos, which, as Professor Saintsbury remarks, often “blends with or passes into the utterance of religious awe, unstained and unweakened by any craven fear” (18301894).
