    Given to me by my parents on my sixteenth birthday this anthology of 19th century women poets served as my introduction to the work of many of the authors included from Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Christina Rossetti It also served as my introduction to the Pre Raphaelites as the artwork accompanying the poetry is taken from that school Some of the authors particularly Emily Dickinson and the Brontë sisters were already known to me although in the case of Anne Charlotte and Emily Brontë this was solely through their prose worksAlthough I have not picked it up in years I read and reread Sound the Deep Waters Women's Romantic Poetry in the Victorian Age countless times as an adolescent and derived significant enjoyment from both poetry and artwork I must have been romantically inclined in those days My favorite of the pieces included by editor Pamela Norris is Anne Brontë's Lines Composed in a Wood on a Windy Day which still retains its power over me despite the years MY soul is awakened my spirit is soaringAnd carried aloft on the wings of the breeze;For above and around me the wild wind is roaringArousing to rapture the earth and the seasThe long withered grass in the sunshine is glancingThe bare trees are tossing their branches on high;The dead leaves beneath them are merrily dancingThe white clouds are scudding across the blue skyI wish I could see how the ocean is lashingThe foam of its billows to whirlwinds of spray;I wish I could see how its proud waves are dashingAnd hear the wild roar of their thunder today

    I absolutely adored this poetry anthology The combination of poetry and paintings really worked for me Most of the poems were lovely and I just found myself really compelled to keep reading

    So much to love in this keepsake volume lush prints of Pre Raphaelite portraits inclusion of cherished literary muses such as the Brontë sisters and Christina Rossetti the overall feel of sitting in a warm garden lyrical expressions of a woman's heart All true but I will most be grateful for the introduction to Alice Meynell especially for A Shattered Lute

    I wish I could be backwards reincarnated as Emily Bronte A few gems but not much that blew me away Overall pretty good if you're in the mood for Victorian romantic style poetry which I mostly wasn't apparently The accompanying paintings were a nice touch
