Goblin Market | Christina Rossetti - Illustrated by Georgie McAusland
Illustrator Georgie McAusland brings Christina Rossetti’s classic poem Goblin Market (1862) to life in this beautiful new volume published by Batsford Books.
The story tells the tale of two sisters drifting apart as Laura is tempted by the forbidden fruit sold by the goblins!
The story has been interpreted in many ways over the years and this version is an absolutely gorgeous treatment for a new generation. Rosetti entwines themes of sexuality, sisterhood and love in this tale and she continues to be regarded as the foremost female poet of her time.
