|dc.description.abstract||This thesis analyzes Christina Rossetti's second devotional prose work, Seek and Find. Specifically, it examines her articulations of the Tractarian doctrines of Analogy and Reserve. In order to establish her familiarity with these ideas, an exhaustive account of her ties to the Oxford Movement is given. This section brings together pieces from many authors and makes them a cohesive whole, correcting some frequent misperceptions. Also, in order to understand Seek and Find, this thesis explores whether or not Rossetti's text is in the form of a harmony. This requires defining a harmony, something that has not been done before. The thesis also clarifies which harmony by Isaac Williams Rossetti refers in her preface. The final section explores a representative section of the text.||en_US|
