Goblin Market

I’ve been reading a fair amount of poetry later, mostly for class, but also revisiting  some old favorites; one being Christina Rossetti’s  pre-Raphaelite jewel, Goblin Market (Link Here).

This little graphite drawing was inspired by her wonderfully dark poem.

“Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy”
