Dante Gabriel Rossetti biography :

D. G. Rossetti is a prominent poet, painter and translator. Born on May 12, 1828 into a highly creative family, he was the brother of poet Christina Rossetti and the critic William Michael Rossetti. He also co-founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, which aimed to recover the richness and purity of medieval art.
D. G. Rossetti was a precocious writer; at 20 years old, his poem The Blessed Damozel (1847) won critical acclaim. His early works clearly show the influence of Medieval art, from his numerous translations of Dante and other Medieval Italian poets and his use of realistic images. Unfortunately, a personal tragedy radically influenced his literary style. His wife, Elizabeth Siddal, overdosed on laudanum after their child was stillborn. This led to a a recurring theme of romantic love, and a more metaphorical and sensual style—as if he were searching for the wife he lost in his creations.
In 1871, Rossetti published his first poetry collection, characterized by an eroticism that sent shockwaves in conservative literary circles. He defended his work by explaining his sonnets were a “moment’s monument”, capturing everyday acts such as a couple falling asleep after sex and provoking the reader to reflect upon their meaning.
D. G. Rossetti struggled with depression for most of his life, including drug addiction in his later years. He died at Birchington-on-Sea, Kent, England.
