book reviews by Althea

The Goblin Market – Christina Rossetti ****

Leave a comment

Another classic that I hadn’t read for many, many years. While generally I appreciate authors who are loath to have their work read as allegory, this is too clear to be denied. The message I get out of this? “While men may be very tempting, it’s generally safer to have sex with other women before marriage (Although the men won’t think much of that plan).”
