An antidote to our contemporary view of the Victorian woman as corseted, controlled, and obliged to repress passions and creative urges, this book presents the work of iconoclastic Victorian painters and poets, reveal vibrant inner lives of women filled with dreams and romance. Also the author of Words of Love: Passionate Women from Heloise to Sylvia Plath, Pamela Norris offers an exquisitely decorative collection of poems—Emily Brontë's "Remembrance" and Christina Rossetti's "A Birthday" among them, as well as poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Dickinson, and George Eliot—illustrated with 52 reproductions of Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and Evelyn de Morgan.
