Elizabeth Siddal’s poems were never published in her lifetime. Dates of when they are written are unknown. It is tempting to view them as autobiographical, but I urge you not to do so in order to allow her work to stand on its own merits. The stories of Siddal’s relationship with Rossetti, addiction, stillbirth and death have become so mythologized that they overshadow her work to the point that we are in danger of viewing her poems as clues to her personal life instead of poetic works worthy of merit. Her poems were published in the hard to find volume ‘Poems and Drawings of Elizabeth Siddal”, Wombat Press in 1978. Co-editors Roger C. Lewis and Mark Samuels Lasner.
