_oneinEMillion_: a f/f YA horror retelling of Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market” is a thing I didn’t know I needed until right now and now I don’t know how I will survive 4 months without it…

jo34534386: Apropos JKR's ridiculously belated mauling over 'her' depiction of goblins: she wasn't the first to be bad faithed searched for anti-Semitic tropes; see (eg) Cynthia Scheinberg's notes on Christina Rossetti

LTKelly84: To resist the urge to just tweet TS Eliott, how about Christina Rossetti's poem Epiphany. As is so often the case with her, the Victorian form comes with an unsentimental interior.

la8Pe99Na2: In the bleak midwinter, Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone ; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow , in the bleak midwinter , Long ago . Christina G Rossetti The Road to Louveciennes , 1872 Camille Pissarro

ForwomenScot: Also, poetry. Watch out for Christina Rossetti One had a cat’s face, One whisk’d a tail, One tramp’d at a rat’s pace, One crawl’d like a snail, One like a wombat prowl’d obtuse and furry, One like a ratel tumbled hurry skurry.

cwoodwardpoetry: Christina Rossetti had strong Billie Holiday energy.
