Goblin Market and Other Poems by Christina Rossetti

'Goblin Market and Other Poems was Christina Rossetti's first full volume of poetry, published in 1862. The collection received widespread critical praise and established Rossetti as the foremost female poet of her time. Tennyson, Hopkins and Swinburne all admired her work. The title poem 'Goblin Market' is arguably her most famous, a fairy tale entwining themes of sisterhood, temptation and sexuality. This collection also includes 'Up-hill', an allegorical dialogue on life and death and 'Maude Clare', a ballad of a woman scorned.'

The centre cover image was illustrated by her brother Dante and is the cover page for the (I think) first edition.

Also, for those interested in listening, I'm surprised to find that there is an Audible version of Rossetti's poems. I'm not sure exactly which poems are included compared to our selection but it's narrated by actress Natascha McElhone and is titled In the Bleak Midwinter, Goblin Market and Other Poems.

If you don't mind spending a little money, I think the complete work of Delphi Classics would be a good bargain. You will get almost everything of Christina Rossetti in this Ebook.

I've just finished reading along to the Librivox recording of Goblin Market and I have to say that as a poetry novice, it definitely helped. I really doubt I'll have anything useful to contribute to the discussion, as my reaction overall could be summed up as "subtle it ain't", but I look forward to reading what more practiced poetry readers have to say, and to reading along with the rest of the poems.
