'Keats vs. Shelley: The Rossettis, the Romantics and Sibling Rivalry'. DINAH ROE at the KEATS-SHELLEY HOUSE
On Friday 6 December at 5pm Dinah Roe, Senior Lecturer in Nineteenth-Century Literature (Oxford Brookes University), will give a talk about John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and the Rossetti family. The event is FREE and advance booking is recommended.
Dinah Roe is particularly interested in Victorian poetry, specifically that of the Pre-Raphaelites. She recently selected and introduced a collection of Pre-Raphaelite poetry for Penguin Classics, entitled The Pre-Raphaelites: From Rossetti to Ruskin (2010). Her research into the work of Christina and Dante Gabriel Rossetti led to her latest book, a biography of the Rossetti family entitled The Rossettis In Wonderland: A Victorian Family History (2011). For her next project, she is planning a book on the interactions of literary and visual arts in Pre-Raphaelite art, taking into account the influence of nineteenth-century literature on book illustration, painting and the decorative arts from 1848 to the turn of the century.
