Description

This four volume set demonstrates the profoundly interdisciplinary nature of Pre-Raphaelitism. It collects together original Pre-Raphaelite materials comprising fiction, prose, verse, literary criticism and illustration, from key figures, and those less-known in the movement.

A unique range of writings on art, design, architecture, philosophy, religion, science, and politics is presented in the following themed volumes:

* literature and literary criticism

* autobiographies and diaries from Pre-Raphaelites such as William Morris, George du Maurier, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Algernon Swinburne

* philosophy, design and art criticism

* social and cultural critique.

A new introduction to the set provides an indispensable overview of the Pre-Raphaelites and their works, and highlights the precise themes and contexts of the material selected.
