Goblin Market was written by Christina Rossetti and first published in 1862. The poem is teeming with imagery and symbolism, true to the nature of the Pre-Raphaelite era in which it was written. It is about two sisters, Laura and Lizzie, who are enticed by the calls of the goblin merchants, who sell fruits in fantastic abundance, variety and flavor. Laura succumbs to the temptation of the forbidden fruits, and Lizzie tries to help her fallen sister.
