Two sisters, Laura and Lizzie, are enticed by the smells, sounds and sights of the goblin market, tempted by the ripe figs, plump cherries and fragrant berries. Whilst Lizzie resists, Laura is slowly destroyed by her insatiable longing for the goblin''s forbidden fruit. Complete & Unabridged. Part of the Macmillan Collector''s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition of Goblin Market & Other Poems features a preface by Elizabeth Macneal and original illustrations by Laurence Houseman. Here is Christina Rossetti''s first critically acclaimed collection of poetry. Published in 1862, as well as ''Goblin Market'' it contains some of her most treasured work, such as ''A Birthday'', ''An Apple Gathering'' and ''Remember''. It launched her career as the foremost female poet of her time and, more than a century later, modern readers are still seduced by its symbolism and sensual language.
