Rossetti was a volunteer worker from 1859 to 1870 at the St.
Mary Magdalene "house of charity" in Highgate, a refuge for former prostitutes and it is suggested Goblin Market may have been inspired by the "fallen women" she came to know.
Song When I am dead, my dearest, Sing no sad songs for me; Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree: Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet: And if thou wilt, remember, And if thou wilt, forget.
Her most famous collection, Goblin Market and Other Poems, appeared in 1862, when she was 31.
Rossetti sat for several of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's most famous paintings.
In 1848, she was the model for the Virgin Mary in his first completed oil painting, The Girlhood of Mary Virgin, which was the first work to be inscribed with the initials 'PRB', later revealed to signify the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
In her late teens, Rossetti became engaged to the painter James Collinson, the first of three suitors.
He was, like her brothers Dante and William, one of the founding members of the avant-garde artistic group, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (founded 1848).
Feminists held her as symbol of constrained female genius, placed as a leader of 19th-century poets.
