About the Poet:

Poet Christina Rossetti was a significant poet of the Victorian Era.

Born in 1830, she was the youngest child in an extraordinarily gifted family. Her father, the Italian poet and political exile Gabriele Rossetti immigrated to England in 1824 and established a career as a Dante scholar and teacher of Italian in London. 

Her brother, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, was a renowned artist of the early Pre-Raphaelite movement, while her sister Maria Francesca and another brother, William Michael, were famed writers and critics at the time.

Rossetti wrote several ballads, poems and hymns, all marked by symbolism and intense feeling. Her best-known work is Goblin Market and Other Poems, and she is also the author of In the Bleak Midwinter, which was set to music by the composer Gustav Holt and is best known around the world as A Christmas Carol. 

In 1891, Rossetti developed cancer, of which she died in London on December 29, 1894.
