Christina Rossetti: Poems

Later life

In the later decades of her life, Rossetti suffered from Graves' Disease, diagnosed in 1872 and suffering a nearly fatal attack in the early 1870s .[1][3] In 1893, she developed breast cancer and though the tumour was removed, she suffered a recurrence in September 1894.[18] She died in Bloomsbury on 29 December 1894 and was buried in Highgate Cemetery.[17][19] The place where she died, in Torrington Square, is marked with a stone tablet.[20]
