Rossetti, Christina - Goblin Market and Selected Poems - ( Item 125276 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2011. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Very Good+ slipcase. Some fading to panels of slipcase. Three-quarter-bound in cloth with a Modigliani paper side. Printed with a design by Jillian Tamaki. Gilded top edge. Set in Perpetua. 176 pages. Frontispiece. 10 colour and 5 black & white illustrations. Book size: 10¼" × 7½". An extended poem about two young sisters who hear goblin merchants hawking their wares. Lizzie urges caution but Laura eats the forbidden fruit and falls into a frenzy, from which her sister must save her. Christina Rossetti is one of the most frequently anthologised of 19th-century poets, her poems read at services and sung as hymns and carols. She is sometimes thought of as a fragile, pious invalid, an ‘angel in the house’ whose poems dwell on heaven and death, but further reading reveals a vital and exuberant poetic gift that influenced writers like Emily Dickinson and Virginia Woolf. This Folio Society edition brings together a selection of her finest verse.
