John Simons is a professor of English and the dean of the faculty of media, humanities, and technology at the University of Lincoln. He has published widely on subjects ranging from medieval chivalric romance to Andy Warhol. Series: Popular culture. Now, I'd rather read a book about wombats, or a book about the Rossettis, than this pricy fluff, with its often maddening tediousness and slight inaccuracy (Bligh's open boat journey was in 1789 not 1790, and Tasmania was not on the itinerary, . 6). You start to wonder how much of what's reported is true and if the author even cared to try finding out.

The seven Pre-Raphaelite brethren were all very young: Millais was only 19.

The seven Pre-Raphaelite brethren were all very young: Millais was only 19; Rossetti 20, and Hunt 21 years of age. The others weren’t much older. Their stated aim was to resuscitate painting in England by committing themselves to the truthful study of nature, and to the example of fifteenth-century Italian painting. The Pre-Raphaelites and their friends were committed to the idea of the beauty of creation and, through Ruskin, to the essentially moral and Christian foundation of aesthetics as well. We know there was a wombat among the birds and animals that were delivered to the menagerie of the Empress Joséphine Bonaparte at Malmaison, near Paris.

A light-hearted account of an improbable side of Victorian England, this history tells of the pet wombat owned by Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the late-19th century fad of owning Australian animals as pets. This examination also looks at the way a wombat participated in the delicate relationships between the men and women in the Pre-Raphaelite circle—particularly Rossetti’s emotional affair with Jane Morris, wife of his friend and colleague William. Fully illustrated with drawings and etchings of the period, this work will appeal to those with an interest in Victorian England, the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as wombat lovers the world over.
