On This Day

Christina Rossetti

Poet

Born on this day (1830), Christina Rossetti wrote a number of romantic, devotional, and children's poems.

She published her first two poems Death's Chill Between and Heart's Chill Between in the Athenaeum in 1848, when she was 18. Under the pseudonym Ellen Alleyne she contributed to the literary magazine, The Germ, published by the Pre-Raphaelites from January to April 1850 and edited by her brother William - marking the beginning of her public career.

She is famous for writing Goblin Market and Remember and the words of the Christmas carols In the Bleak Midwinter, set to music by composer Gustav Holst and Love Came Down at Christmas.
