I wonder if that poem was about Elizabeth Siddal, Christina's brother Dante's wife/muse. I understand Elizabeth suffered quite a bit while posing for Dante. For his famous painting of drowned Ophelia she had to lie in the bath for ages and ages, and I don't think the bath was very warm...


one of the reasons I LOVE this sonnet is because the "model" in question, is herself a woman PAINTER and poet....
curious to know more about her? Just GOOGLE :)

Looking forward to more adventures in the The Life and Times of Danger Girl. And so glad to hear you fended off Isabel (with your bare hands, I bet)!
