Abstract. The sonnet cycle "Monna Innominata" is analyzed in the context of C. G. Rossettis creative work, considering the problem of the correlation of earthy and celestial love, which is the key one in her amorous lyrics. In C. G. Rossettis creative work Pre-Raphaelite principles are in tune with her deep religiousness, dedication to Tractarianism and its esthetical conceptions. First of all, it refers to the "modest reserve" principle, which forbids the poet to express the feelings explicitly, it explains the mysteriousness of the poetesss works. "Monna Innominata" manifests Rossettis dedication to Dantes philosophy and serves as her response to "Sonnets from the Portuguese" by E. Barrett Browning.
