Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » What do you do with somebody who, like me, has always declared that she does not like the Pre-Raphaelites, expecially not Rossetti? There is an easy answer: you lead the non-Rossetti-liker to this book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. It is guaranteed to dispel misconceptions, to illuminate, to delight, even to make one feel ashamed (and incredulous) at having missed so much that is beautiful and fresh. it can be deduced that I myself found the book a revelation, and one for which I am extremely grateful. For the first time I am aware of really seeing what Rossetti was about, what a profound and innovative vision he had, how subtly and skillfully he teaches us to look and to experience. The essays are written in clear, elegant, persuasive prose and the illustrations implement the message of the text. If you already respond to this artist, this will increase your pleasure. If you have had a blind-spot, as I have had, then open your eyes and prepare for conversion.(Kirkus UK)
