Overview

A deliciously dark rhyming fairy tale, Goblin Market tells the story of two beautiful, virginal sisters seduced by lewd goblin men serving up luscious but ruinous fruits. Christina Rossetti's first major work, the poem was published in 1862 to critical acclaim. Embraced today for its provocative imagery and timeless theme of forbidden pleasures, the poem has become a literary classic. This special edition includes the enchanting paintings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the author's eldest brother and leader of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and illustrations by William Morris, whose beautiful wife, Jane Burdon Morris, was Dante Gabriel's lover and model. A fascinating afterword by acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates places this haunting work of repressed Victorian eroticism in its literary, artistic, and social context.

Her sister's love saves Laura from the poison of the fruit she bought from the goblins in the haunted glen.

    you'll never know

    A long timw ago my mother's sister gave her this book. I found it hidden on the shelf and read it. I have since given it to a few of my sisters. My words cannot describe this book very well , but it is a story of sisterly love. Friends will come and go but sisters will always be there. So if you have a sister or know someone who does you should read this book. (sisters don't have to be biological there is somethings that are stronger than blood)
