Book Description

GOBLIN MARKETFAIRYTALE POEMFABLES OF TEMPTATION AND REDEMPTIONBearing luscious fruit, goblins try to seduce sisters Lizzie and Laura. Laura succumbs, but Lizzie resists and, in their anger, the goblins squeeze the fruit on to her body- To rescue her sister, Lizzie sacrifices herself and the goblins' power is defeated.By many of her con temporaries Christina Rossetti was regarded as Britain's finest living poet and Goblin Market her finest poem. All her work blends a cool irony with sorrow and, underneath deceptively simple surfaces, the unexpected strength of the spider's web.
