Description
“Goblin Market” Notes Major, form of rhymes is a lot wilder in “Goblin Market”. The narrative is very different from Christina  ROSSETTI.   ▯ Marxist/Economic Critic­ poem is about a market, desire, triumph of Lizzie when she doesn’t eat  the food, she leaves with the food and money in her pocket.  ▯ gender­ the bodies of Lizzie and Laura are seen as being in conflict.  ▯ sometimes a reader decides whether a narrative is open or closed, based on how we read it.  Abbatt’s Way of Reading Narratives ▯  Intentional­ reading from the assumption that the narrative works as a whole, that every detail  counts. That the author meant it in the way that it comes out, makes most sense. Most common  way of making sense of narratives. Limited, no way to really know what the author meant. Look at a  detail in a text, can’t really figure out why it is there, which makes it limited. Reading for the closure  trying to understand what the story means, more closed. Intentional Reading of “Goblin Market”­  ▯ The come buy changes as the individual desires or does not desire the fruit. Lizzie does, so the  tone is a lot more welcoming, market like. But Laura instead is forced, assaulted into buying. ▯ can  be reflective of sexual temptation, assault and consequences. This could also show the monetary  victory of Lizzie having her money and the fruit. ▯ BUT what is consistent is that each situation is  possible, but only the most likely is chosen in this type of reading. LAURA VS LIZZIE. Both feel  temptation and desire, but Lizzie ignores it, but Laura fed
