Reviews

'Roe's book rediscovers neglected works, making a case for their relevance to a modern audience...It is a beautifully written, thoughtful and accessible work which will appeal to fans of poetry, women's writing, and the 19th century.' - The Hamstead and Highgate Express

'With critical sensitivity and careful attentiveness to Rossetti's poetic style and scriptural heritage, Roe demonstrates in convincing and original close readings Rossetti's deft mining of Tractarian aesthetic resources including typology, analogy, and reserve...Christina Rossetti's Faithful Imagination deserves careful study by all serious Rossetti scholars.' - Esther T. Hu, Victorian Studies

'...Dinah Roe contributes significantly to the growing interest in Christina Rossetti's theology and to the recent trend of examing Rossetti's devotional work...Roe also enhances our understanding of Rossetti's devotional prose, a rearely treated aspect of her work that requires more thorough consideration.' - Todd O. Williams, Journal of Pre-Raphaelite Studies
