Dinah Roe is a Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Oxford Brookes University, specialising in nineteenth-century poetry and Pre-Raphaelite studies. Her monograph Christina Rossetti’s Faithful Imagination challenged the long-held critical assumption that Rossetti’s creativity was compromised by her religious faith. Other major publications on Rossetti include Christina Rossetti: Selected Poems (Penguin Classics) and an anthology of Pre-Raphaelite poems, The Pre-Raphaelites: From Rossetti to Ruskin (Penguin Classics). She is currently working on a monograph entitled The Art of Pre-Raphaelite Poetry.
