Title of Dissertation:
Christina Rossetti’s Philosophy Seen from Her Paradoxes

Prof. LI Ou

Christina Rossetti is noted for her paradoxes and inconsistencies, which in fact sheds light on her philosophy. I argue that her diversifying and apparently contradictory presentations serve to preach a dialectical and objective view on life and, based on that, a positive attitude toward both life and death.
