Christina Rossetti: Love Lies Bleeding

Sadly, my month of working with Christina Rossetti’s poetry must come to an end. To finish up the month, here is an essay I have written on her poetry. It is an early draft of a chapter towards a larger book I am writing about the power of writing in the Christian life; this means that it is long, but also means it is not yet drafted. I hope some of you can still find it an interesting and helpful read.

  1. I’ve downloaded this for my night-time reading this evening. I’m looking forward to it.

    I also noticed it appears my identical twin has liked you on Facebook as well. We have similar tastes. πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for introducing me to some wonderful poets! I can’t say I was all that into poetry (I had a mild interest) but my interest is growing. And such a great essay on Christian Rossetti! Loved it! BTW…I’m reading a book called The Divine Conspiracy and the author, Dallas Willard mentions William Cowper and I was like, “I know him!!!!” *says it like Buddy the Elf* haha!! πŸ˜›
