Christina Rossetti's 'Seek and Find' Published

In late summer to early fall of 1879, the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge published Christina Rossetti's Seek and Find: A Double Series of Short Studies on the Benedicite. Though this work was likely influenced by G.C. Child's Benedicite; or, Song of the three children published in 1866, Rossetti offers a unique commentary on the Benedicite through her devotional prose, one that exemplifies her own theological vision of creation. Seek and Find presents a two-fold reading of the Benedicite, through the lenses of "Creation" and "Redemption," in which Rossetti aims to edify readers in contemplating Christ in all of creation, for each created thing bears an inherent beauty resembling that of the divine.
