Muse (Paperback)Dawn Marie Kresan (author)
- Not available
As a model, then pupil, she married the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and although an artist and poet in her own right, Siddal is best known as a Victorian muse and the inspiration for her husband's paintings.
In sensual and evocative language, Dawn Marie Kresan shifts voices and perspectives, from Siddal's loss and heartbreak over her stillborn daughter to the poet's lighthearted reproach of artist William Holman Hunt's depiction of the Lady of Shalott.
