Pre-Raphaelitism and Medievalism in the Arts
Edwin Mellen Press, 1992 - Art - 318 pages
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.

Page 314 - I began printing books with the hope of producing some which would have a definite claim to beauty, while at the same time they should be easy to read and should not dazzle the eye, or trouble the intellect of the reader by eccentricity of form in the letters.
