Dinah Roe, author of The Rossetti's in Wonderland, suggests the "proliferation of articles on the Pre-Raphaelites is an indication of the growing excitement around the 2012 Tate Britain Exhibition, but whatever the reason, its hard not to notice the sudde...   »

I've been in the process of planning a trip to London next spring (granted one needs funds for something like this). BUT: the Tate is opening new exhibit next September that relates directly to my book's thesis: Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde. The...   »

Rossetti as Obsessive Collector
Posted July 10th, 2011 @ 9:10 pm EST

In The Observer's review of Jacqueline Yallop's Magpies, Squirrels and Thieves: How the Victorians Collected the World, I was delighted that the writer highlighted Rossetti's compulsive hoarding tendencies for bric-a-brac as well as for exotic menagerie a...   »

"A Dry Fire Eats You"
Posted September 25th, 2009 @ 12:17 pm EST

How I Imagine Myself

Minus the blonde hair. Slash the heels. Replace the dress with cutoffs. Add a slouch to her posture. I love this image. Isn't it funny how we identify ourselves in pictures that really have nothing to do with ourselves? I don't own a typewriter (I want on...   »
