Ageless Heirlooms


Christina Rossetti, sister to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, was an English poet during the mid Victorian era that was born in London and educated by her mother. Known mostly for her romantic and children’s poetry, Rossetti began writing at the age of 7 and was first published at age 18 despite lingering depression resulting from a nervous breakdown suffered years earlier. Though her work faded in the 20th century after her death and the rise of modernism, today she is still studied as an important part of Victorian nomenclature.
