Christina Rossetti's Maude: Prose and Verse, a short work written early in the poet's career but not published until three years after her death, is usually considered from an autobiographical perspective, generally an unflattering one. Such an approach was early encouraged by William Michael Rossetti's "Prefatory Note" to the first edition.
