Christina Rossetti and Illustration: Publishing History (Hardback)
Disponible auprès d'autres vendeurs
Language: English . Brand New Book. Readers do not always take into account how books that combine image and text make their meanings. But for the Pre-Raphaelite poet Chriistina Rossetti, such considerations were central. This volume maps the production and reception of Rossetti s illustrated poetry, devotional poetry and work for children, both in the author s lifetime and in posthumous 20th-century reprints. The author, Lorraine Janzen Kooistra s reading of Rossetti s illustrated works reveals the visual-verbal aesthetic that was fundamental to Rossetti s poetics. Her archival research brings to light information on how Rossetti s commitment to illustration and attitudes to copyright and control influenced her transactions with publishers and the books they produced. Kooistra also tracks the poet s reception in the 20th century through a complex web of illustrated books produced of a wide range of audiences. Analyzing an impressive array of empirical data, Kooistra shows how Rossetti s packaging for commodity consumption - by religious presses, publishers of academic editions and children s picture books, and makers of erotica and collectibles - influenced the reception of her work and her place in literary history.
