From one of the finest poets of the Victorian era comes this treasury of verse, combining two classic collections of poetry by Christina Rossetti: Goblin Market and Other Poems and Shorter Poems. The centerpiece is Rossetti's most famous work, "Goblin Market," a haunting fairy tale. For children, the narrative fable offers a romp through a fantasy world. For older readers, the market's lusciously described fruits represent the temptations of self-indulgence, rendering the poem a moving moral allegory of pleasure, sacrifice, and redemption.
Beautifully illustrated with 16 full-color paintings and scores of line drawings by Florence Harrison, this volume also includes such popular poems as "The Hour and the Ghost," "My Dream," "Mirage," "Twilight Calm," and 32 other wondrous meditations on love and loss, death and remembrance, and nature and spirituality. It offers a splendid introduction to the glories of Rossetti's work as well as a lovely keepsake edition for those already acquainted with the deeply spiritual poet.
