In revisiting the copious works of Christina Rossetti, Sharon Smulders focuses on the poet's versatility as a writer. Smulders sees Rossetti as a writer interested in fostering and sustaining possibilities for feminine self-expression; she carefully observes the way the poet engaged in a range of formal experiments in both prose and verse and frequently resisted or dislocated established generic conventions to achieve her ends. Smulders also sees Rossetti as a writer very much of her time: her attitudes toward contemporary social, religious, and aesthetic issues inform the thematic and formal preoccupations of her work.
