Description

A collectible new Penguin Classics series: stunning, clothbound editions of ten favourite poets, which present each poet's most famous book of verse as it was originally published.

Designed by the acclaimed Coralie Bickford-Smith and beautifully set, these slim, A format volumes are the ultimate gift editions for poetry lovers.

Goblin Market and Other Poems was Christina Rossetti's first full volume of poetry, published in 1862.

The collection received widespread critical praise and established Rossetti as the foremost female poet of her time.

Tennyson, Hopkins and Swinburne all admired her work.

The title poem 'Goblin Market' is arguably her most famous, a fairy tale entwining themes of sisterhood, temptation and sexuality.

This collection also includes 'Up-hill', an allegorical dialogue on life and death and 'Maude Clare', a ballad of a woman scorned.
