As you might have guessed by now from my profile picture or my list of “Blogs I Follow,” I sort of have a thing for Pre-Raphaelite art. I’m also a fan of the poetry of Christina Rossetti. So you can imagine my surprise when it finally dawned on me a few years ago that one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, was the brother of the famous poetess. Not only that, but the two of them also came from an entire family of artists and writers. This was one family that I had to know more about, so I was excited to read The Rossettis in Wonderland, a biography of the family by university lecturer and Pre-Raphaelite scholar Dinah Roe.
