Chapter 39

Rossetti: "I've been thinking. Since I haven't exhibited this year, and Stone hasn't mentioned my name in print, won't it seem strange my turning up with you tonight?" Hunt, who had been unusually quiet, shot daggers at Rossetti.

Young PRB, by Elisabeth M. Lee, a novel about the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Now available in paperback and eBook.

"I want to be part of a cause - to inspire. I want change, but I can only attempt to change something I know about, and maybe that's art."

Young William Holman Hunt is ambitious, young John Everett Millias is confident, and young Dante Gabriel Rossetti is idealistic. With the combination of these strengths, these young men are poised to turn over the art world as they know it. Together with four friends they form the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB). It may be partially a school boy's rejection of their elders, but they are the first to challenge the status quo of the Royal Academy of Art and the elite who dictated artistic taste in London. Naiveté and inexperience are assets, not hindrances, and from the mouths of babes comes the first stirrings of artistic rebellion.

YOUNG PRB tells the story of these young men: Their trials and triumphs. Their enemies and allies. But mostly it is a story of friendship and how adversity, success, and growing up can test even the strongest bonds.

Chapter 24 - One day (Lizzie) arrived with a volume of Tennyson under her arm and an array of questions for Hunt. "You've read the poem?" he asked.
