Elizabeth Siddall is best known as the muse and model for many Pre-Raphaelite artists and as the wife of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. However, she was also an artist and a poet. This book publishes all her extant poetry in a single volume for the first time. Serena Trowbridge has undertaken extensive archival research to restore Siddall’s better-known poems – often heavily edited in previous publications – to their original form, and to identify and reproduce poems and fragments not previously included in anthologies. Elizabeth Siddall’s own voice emerges fully from these pages, supporting her rediscovery as a creative artist in her own right.

Each poem is accompanied by notes and analysis, and the detailed introduction, extensive bibliography, and biographical timeline position Siddall in her historical, literary and critical contexts. Appendices include a previously unpublished letter from Siddall and poems by other writers that relate to her life and work. The book is illustrated with portraits of Siddall and examples of her own art.
