Summary
"This book marks a step forward in Rossetti studies, by giving serious consideration to the theological content of Christina Rossetti's devotional prose volumes as well as an appreciation of their literary content. Long devalued and ignored, these volumes show a unique blend of literary and theological insights, and display a clarity of vision not always present in her poetry. Rossetti's relationship to the Great Tractarians is explored, as is her rejection of their notions of 'worldliness' and her revaluation of the female body and spirit. An exciting picture of Rossetti emerges: a foremother of modern feminist theology, fighting for environmental and animal protection, and fiercely defending those women who have been exploited or degraded."--BOOK JACKET
