Scholarly Commentary


This is the first poem in DGR's letter to his brother of 27 September 1849, the first letter he sent back to England from his Pre-Raphaelite trip to Paris and Belgium with Holman Hunt. WMR later collected the many poems that DGR wrote on the trip into the composite sequence he titled “A Trip to Paris and Belgium”.
