To what extent does Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market” illustrate some or any of the Victorian women’s social issues that we have been reading and discussing in relation to “The Woman Question,” “The Angel in the House,” The Madwoman in the Attic, The Subjection of Women, and also the George Eliot and Virginia Woolf readings? Is “Goblin Market” a feminist poem, or does it act as more of an example of a poem that supports some of the imposed Victorian social values in relation to women? To what extent does it support and/or challenge those imposed values?
You must also use at least 4 direct quotations from the poem to support the claims that you make in your paper, cited with parenthetical references in correct MLA format. (Rossetti lines 40-41).
