Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Who would have thought such a spritely dance of a poem could be so LEWD?
I totally get why this would have become a sensation in 1859. It doesn't wax poetic about religion or morals, but it sure as hell tells of the underlying lust and anguish that sex brings. Socially as well as within.
To be clear, it never speaks directly of such, but reading it in any other way soon becomes a real chore and boring to boot. :)
So read away, my lovelies, but read it with a lusty heart.
