Beschreibung:

In her work "Katja Brandt effectively questions the assumption that literary relationships are always envious ones. Importantly, she offers a complex reading of the relationship between Christina Rossetti (1830-94) and her literary forefather John Milton (1608-74). A Brandt notes, the tendency among feminist scholars has been to view Milton primarily as a figure of patriarchal oppression to be resisted by women writers. By focusing on the Christian faith that Rossetti shared with Milton, Brandt convincingly argues for a more complex understanding of Rossetti s response to Milton. This focus on Rossetti s faith places Brandt s work firmly in the most recent scholarship being done on Rossetti, a phase that is significantly altering our image of the poet and her work. - Diane D Amico
