Summary
"Christina Rossetti and Illustration: A Publishing History maps the production and reception of Rossetti's illustrated poetry, devotional prose, and work for children, both in the author's lifetime and in posthumous twentieth-century reprints." "Lorraine Janzen Kooistra's reading of Rossetti's illustrated works reveals for the first time the visual-verbal aesthetic that was fundamental to Rossetti's poetics. Her thorough archival research brings to light new information on how Rossetti's commitment to illustration and attitudes toward copyright and control influenced her transactions with publishers and the books they produced. Janzen Kooistra also tracks Rossetti's reception in the twentieth century through a complex web of illustrated books produced for a wide range of audiences." "Analyzing an array of empirical data, Janzen Kooistra shows how Rossetti's packaging for commodity consumption - by religious presses, publishers of academic editions and children's books, and makers of erotica and collectibles - influenced the reception of her work and her place in literary history."--Jacket
