Pre-Raphaelite Poetry

ImageThe Pre-Raphaelite Society has published a small book of poems drawn from the entrants to the second Pre-Raphaelite Society Poetry Prize. The poems included are inspired by Pre-Raphaelite paintings, poems and people, and represent the range of inspiration the Pre-Raphaelites provide for poets today. The book’s cover features a new painting by Joanna Gration, called Lizzie and Laura, which was the winner of the 2013 PRS Painting and Drawing Competition.

The book is available on http://www.lulu.com for £3.99 plus £2.99 p&p. Given rising postage costs, it is cheaper for you to buy it direct from lulu.com than for us to bulk buy copies and post them out. We hope you will enjoy the book.

You can find the book here.

When the young Tennyson published his first book of poems in 1830, the Romantic poets were all but gone and the new age of poetry still waiting in the wings. How did he and others make sense of that famous but fading poetic landscape? On a journey from Wordsworth to Hardy, this reading group will introduce you to the great English Romantic revolution in poetry and then head on to encounter the outstanding Victorian poets who took over.
