Reviews

'Ambitious and challenging, The Cambridge Companion to the Pre-Raphaelites achieves the impossible task of a somewhat comprehensive view of Pre-Raphaelite poetry and painting, thus making a solid contribution to Pre-Raphaelite studies and art history.' Journal of Pre-Raphaelite Studies
'... offers eighteen distinct chapters and an introduction by major scholars in the field, the variety of authorship allowing for an unusually full treatment of individual issues and artists. In the case of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris, there is one chapter on the verse and another on the plastic arts. What emerges is an unusually textured account of a movement and its sources and ramifications.' Jonah Siegal, Victorian Studies
