The common thread that joins the essays in this volume is drawn from the rich tapestry of pre-Raphaelite art and literature and its medieval legacy. This edition presents an interdisciplinary view of the interpretation of pre-Raphaelite art and literature. The current intensifying interest in the relationship between the visual arts and narrative and their critical interpretation justifies a look at the earliest use of such orientation in the works of the pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and its followers. Particularly in the work of Rossetti, Hunt, Millais, and Burne-Jones one can see at work the pre-Raphaelist invention of a personal symbolic language. The same holds true for their literary counterparts, particularly Tennyson, Francis Thompson, and Swinburne. The contributors' essays cover the various methodologies of art history and literature, as well as artistic and literary criticisms. The main focus is the assimilation of the medieval tradition as well as the interpretation of it.
