Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the life and work of the Victorian poet Christina Rossetti

Volume 119 of the Journal featured an interview with Karen Dieleman about the work of three poets, one of whom was Christina Rossetti. As a bonus accompanying material, we also released a free recording of an interview with Alan Jacobs which was first featured on Volume 12 of the MARS HILL TAPES.

As yet another resource on this topic for interested listeners, we’d also like to direct you to a podcast produced by the BBC called In Our Time. Hosted by Melvyn Bragg (who was himself a guest of the Journal on Volume 112), the free podcast discusses various topics relating to the history of ideas. Click here to listen to Bragg discuss the life of Christina Rosetti. In this feature, listeners can learn more about the historical context of Rossetti’s work, in particular her connections with such movements as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as well as the Oxford Movement within the Church of England.
