Thus, Juan Martin's own struggle leads to an exploration of Rossetti as someone
who can be understood pathologically, using modern psychological concepts.
Saizarbitoria is the only author to use terms like “neurosis” and “obsession” as
the main interpretative keys to Rossetti, an amplification of Portrayal Five. In the
novella, the narrator's erotic note, the recovery of which was his obsession,
destroys his own more worthwhile work and his relationships with women.

The model for Rosetti's compelling image was Jane Morris, wife of Rossetti's
friend and fellow artist, William Morris. Of all Rossetti's depictions of Jane Morris,
Proserpina perhaps most strongly coveys Rossetti's obsession with her
archetypal 'Pre-Raphaelite' looks; the rich, raven hair suggests female sexuality
and yet at the same time the portrait captures his ideals of spiritual love nurtured
by his constant reading of Dante. Rossetti's obsession with 'Proserpina' inspired
four versions of ...

138-40) When Laura has devoured the feast, she turns homeward, no longer
sustained by the diurnal round but trapped in the no-time of demonic possession,
or, more in key with Rossetti's poetic world, obsession. Her singleness of mind is
encapsulated in a symbolic object: the "one kernel-stone" which she seizes as a
token of the goblin feast. The kernel-stone represents another important
opposition in Rossetti's lexicon: the opposition not only between feast and fast,
enough and ...

... and gutter” (“Pre-Raphaelite Legacy,” 46).12 Khnopff shared with D. G.
Rossetti a predilection for painting picture after picture conveying “the Pre-
Raphaelite ideal female.” Like his admired predecessor, Khnopff sometimes
used his sister as model for his paintings. In his case, however, the paintings of
the auburn-haired Marguerite amounted to a “near- obsession,” in excess even of
D. G. Rossetti's own repeated paintings of Jane Morris (Casteras, “Pre-
Raphaelite Legacy,” 44; West ...

self-preoccupied people, conjoined by a melancholy retrospective obsession' (
1976: 812, n. 19). Read in isolation, Jane and Rossetti's correspondence can
seem preoccupied with health, especially on his side. In particular, the letters
Rossetti wrote while Jane Morris was at Bad Ems in 1869 displayed a keen
attention to the slightest fluctuation in Jane's condition, displacing his romantic
obsession with ...

While he would later develop this poem into the longer work “The Portrait,” even
in this early piece the artist narrator, a protagonist who features frequently in
Rossetti's fiction as well as his verse, is occupied in deliberating on the
transformations inherent in the act of representation. The problematic
consequences of painting the portrait of the beloved articulated in “St Agnes” are
revealed in terms that suggest an obsession with what Rossetti would later call
the “malign vicissitude” ...

Though many of Rossetti's poems are in the first person, one cannot assume she
is speaking personally. Rossetti constructed her own absence to side-step the
issue of her readers considering her own voice to be speaking through her
poems. ... Alison Milbank attributes the Rossetti siblings' interest in Gothic to their
familiarity with the work of Dante, suggesting that they lived literally under a
shadow of Dante through their father's obsession, and also speculates that their
