Poetry Forum > Christina Rossetti - another collection?

Hi folks. We'd really value your feedback on our Christina Rossetti release. Would you be interested in our doing another collection of her works and, if so, which poems would you like us to include? Or would you prefer an unabridged reading of her brother William's biography of her?

Let us know your thoughts. Thanks!

Absolutely. I think another collection of Christina Rossetti poems, read again by Miriam Margolyes, would be fantastic. The current release already includes many of her beautiful and touching poems (e.g., 'Goblin Market', 'Remember Me', 'Despised and Rejected', 'Cousin Kate', 'A Better Resurrection', 'Winter: My Secret' and 'Maude Clare' to name but a few), and I have found myself looking up her other works. If there will be a future release of more Rossetti poems, I'd like to hear some or all of the following:

An Apple-Gathering
The Prince's Progress
The Thread of Life
The Three Enemies
Promises Like Pie-Crust
In The Willow Shade
Monna Innominata: A Sonnet of Sonnets
What Would I Give
Passing away, saith the World
In An Artist's Studio

In the meantime, thanks for this great poetry collection!

I enjoyed the Christina Rossetti readings. I especially enjoyed Goblin Market. I would love to have a second Rossetti release that focuses on her longer, more narrative poems.

Well, with hundreds of great poems to her name, there's plenty of scope for another collection. The poems Anthea suggests are great choices - and, Brian, there are many more poems like 'A Royal Princess' to satisfy your desire for longer narrative works.
