What I Read at University — “Goblin Market”

“We must not look at goblin men,
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?”

—Christina Rossetti

Photo 4 of the “Goblin Market” kitchen in Weaver’s Cottage.

My painting of Animal Goblins beneath trees arching over the door into the livingroom. The little Flower Fairy on the right side of the wall is by the American children’s book illustrator Lauren Mills. The Rude Goblin lurking in the corner (lifting his middle finger behind the blue glass candlesticks) is by Toby Froud, who was seven years old when he painted it.

This photo shows Brian Froud’s fruit-juggling goblins again, plus a small sculpture by Wendy Froud (to the left of the window) of Laura holding a piece of goblin fruit.

(This is all based on Christina Rossetti’s famous Victorian poem Goblin Market, of course.)

The quote above the window is a favorite of mine, by novelist Jonathan Carroll: “Sometimes it’s the smallest thing that saves us: the weather growing cold, a child’s smile, an excellent cup of coffee.”
