D.G. Rossetti's The House of Life (1870) was to late Victorian poetry what T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland was to 20th century poetry, according to Holmes (English and American literature, U. of Reading, UK). As part of a series exploring the roots of modernity, the author studies the changing concepts of sexuality and sexual identity as reflected by Rossetti's seminal sonnet sequence. He offers a close reading of his inclusive views on romantic love; also treats work by Christina Rossetti; and includes a chronological list of the sonnet sequences discussed from "Benedict" to "Melissa" (1789) to W.H. Auden's In Time of War (1939). Based on his doctoral thesis, "The Victorian Sonnet Sequence and the Crisis of Belief, 1870-1890" (Oxford, 2001).
