9. Goblin Market and Other Poems

by Christina Rossetti. Dover Publications. From the publisher: "An important and often-quoted literary figure, the English poet Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) wrote some of the most beautiful and voluptuous poetry in the English language. Like Emily Dickinson, she lived in self-imposed isolation, writing of God and lost love with a sesuality and passion that seemed to emanate from the soul."

10. Rossetti

by Christina Rossetti. Knopf Publishing. From the publisher: "Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) was born in London of Italian parents. With her vivid imagination and innate talent for composing verse, she was an accomplished poet by her late teens. By 1866 she was established as a leading poet of her day. Prematurely in 1871 she was stricken with Graves Disease, becoming increasingly preoccupied with the relationship between earth and heaven, life and death."
