great

(5 Sterne)

sometimes I see where people underscore Christina by saying she was one of the most influential female writers. to me I believe she is one of the greatest poets ever born. with her use of alliteration and rhyme her work just flows so smoothly. there is nothing negative I can say about Christina Rossetti or the reader. the reader does a fabulous job and brings every word to life. it is plain to see that she herself loves the works of Christina Rossetti as much if not more than myself

Unforgettably Strange

(5 Sterne)

Excellent reading of some bizarre poetry

Expressively read heartfelt imaginative poetry

(5 Sterne)

Beautiful
