Poetry Forum > 1.2 - Christina Rossetti

I just listened to the trailer for the Rossetti collection and would like to say how much I loved Miriam Margolyes reading so far. She sounds just absolutely amazing. And as a side note for the website itself, I would just like to say how much I loved the fact that you included a 'Further Reading' section on each page. It is just such a great addition to the site to help introduce people (like myself) to the writers and their works. Thank you so much!

Miriam was amazing. She's a big fan of Christina Rossetti and could remember whole chunks of her poetry verbatim. I've got a little interview with her, which I'll pop into a future podcast.

I'm glad you like the 'Further Reading' sections. We're in the process of adding an extra interactive refinement to them, whereby you can visit a special Textbook Stuff 'bookshop' for each author with direct links to each book on Amazon. Check out the bottom of the Edward Thomas page and you'll see what I mean.

*chuckles* I just posted in the General forum about the further reading section. Should have read this first :P

The 'book shop' idea is excellent. Feels a little like the online reading lists I used to get at uni. Very helpful indeed.

Thanks, Danielle. Delighted to hear you like the interactive reading lists. Our new Literary Consultant, Dr Martin Wiggins, has been recommending extra titles to include.
