Dante Gabriel Rossetti , originalmente Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti, foi um poeta, ilustrador e pintor inglês de origem italiana. Devido à sua preferência pela poesia medieval e em especial pela obra de Dante, Rossetti muda a ordem dos seus nomes e passa a usar Dante em primeiro lugar.

Fundou, juntamente com John Everett Millais e William Holman Hunt, em 1848, a Irmandade Pré-Rafaelita, um grupo artístico entre o espírito revivalista do romantismo e as novas vanguardas do século XX.

Rossetti também escrevia poemas para seus quadros, como "Astarte Syraica". Como designer, trabalhou com William Morris para produzir imagens para vitrais e decorações.

Como ilustrador, Rossetti produziu poucas trabalhos, mas que tiveram influência duradoura sobre ilustradores do século XIX e XX. Fez ilustrações para Moxon Tennyson, Allingham e para os livros de poesia de sua irmã Christina Rossetti.

Citações Dante Gabriel Rossetti

„Unto the furthest flood-brim look with me;
Then reach on with thy thought till it be drown'd.
Miles and miles distant though the last line be,
And though thy soul sail leagues and leagues beyond,—
Still, leagues beyond those leagues, there is more sea.“

—  Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Context: Nay, come up hither. From this wave-wash'd mound Unto the furthest flood-brim look with me; Then reach on with thy thought till it be drown'd. Miles and miles distant though the last line be, And though thy soul sail leagues and leagues beyond,— Still, leagues beyond those leagues, there is more sea.

„Gather a shell from the strewn beach
And listen at its lips: they sigh
The same desire and mystery,
The echo of the whole sea's speech.“

—  Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The Sea-Limits, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919). Compare: "I send thee a shell from the ocean-beach; But listen thou well, for my shell hath speech. Hold to thine ear / And plain thou'lt hear / Tales of ships", Charles Henry Webb, With a Nantucket Shell; The hollow sea-shell, which for years hath stood / On dusty shelves, when held against the ear / Proclaims its stormy parent, and we hear / The faint, far murmur of the breaking flood. / We hear the sea. The Sea? It is the blood / In our own veins, impetuous and near", Eugene Lee-Hamilton, Sonnet. Sea-shell Murmurs'.

„Think thou and act; to-morrow thou shalt die“

—  Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Context: Think thou and act; to-morrow thou shalt die Outstretch'd in the sun's warmth upon the shore, Thou say'st: "Man's measur'd path is all gone o'er: Up all his years, steeply, with strain and sigh, Man clomb until he touch'd the truth; and I, Even I, am he whom it was destin'd for." How should this be? Art thou then so much more Than they who sow'd, that thou shouldst reap thereby?
