Recent investigations have discovered many clippings of letters from Lizzie’s jail cell and journals of Lizzie’s attorney were found that were about 100 pages long. From the things she wrote in her letters to her attorney, Lizzie was portrayed as a cold, stoic individual. She was described as an individual who showed no emotions but the letters seemed to have shown a grieving side of her. After the short time in jail of ten months, Lizzie Borden was acquitted. According to How Lizzie Borden was punished despite her acquittal, Latson, August 4, 2015, “Acquitted her on the grounds that evidence against her was mostly circumstantial.” They weren’t able to gather any evidence that showed directly that Lizzie committed the murders.
Her strength and willpower is highlighted when she is mention as “a rock of blue-vein'd stone/ Lash'd by tides obstreperously”. Very contrasting to interpretation of Goblins’ as a water is “a beacon left alone” that is “Sending up a golden fire,”. It presents Lizzie as a symbol of hope that shows the right way in the darkness and underlines her sense of rightness. Overall this stanza shows strength of Lizzie’s will, a sense of moral
In Christina Rossetti’s poem called the Goblin Market, she presents a conservative, middle-class view of women through character development. The characters Lizzie and Laura represent virtue and recklessness of virtue through their actions. Rossetti’s poem the Goblin Market parallels the fall of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3 as an allegory. She uses the allegory to show the dangers of the goblin men and to compare the opposing traits between Laura and Lizzie. The goblin men take on the role of Satan.
In the bathroom, Lizzie finds pictures taped to the wall of herself as a much older woman and the man in the bed who tells her he is her husband. Lizzie is shocked and frightened, especially when a glance in the mirror tells her that the pictures are accurate even though she is convinced she is only twenty-five, not forty-seven. The man in the bed tells her he is her husband Derek, that they have been married for many years, and that she had an accident that has left her unable to retain new memories. After Derek leaves for his job as a teacher at a nearby school, Lizzie receives a call from a stranger who tells her he is Dr. Smith, a man who has been helping her attempt to recover some of her memories. Dr. Smith picks Lizzie up and takes her to a local park where he explains their work together and shows her a journal she has been keeping for several weeks.
The mangled skulls of Mr. and Mrs. Borden were unveiled in the courtroom as evidence, thus causing such a shock that Lizzie fainted at the sight of them. Lizzie never took the stand during her trial. No evidence could directly link Lizzie to the murders. On June 20, 1893, after only an hour and a half of consideration, the jury decided Lizzie Borden was not guilty. She was therefore acquitted of the crimes.
Sometimes, in life, you have to make hard decisions. The book ‘Lyddie’ by Katherine Paterson is about a girl named Lyddie that leaves her life in Vermont to go work in the mills in Lowell, to earn money to pay off the debt for her family’s farm. The working conditions at the factory are horrible and there is a petition going around by one of Lyddie’s friends, Diana Goss, demanding shorter work hours and better conditions. Lyddie is unsure whether or not to sign the petition. Although some people might say that Lyddie should not sign the petition, for she might get fired and take in no more money for the debt, but she should, because if she does sign the petition and get fired, she will have a better life and be healthier.

The perceived notions of masculinity and femininity are challenged in Dickens’ ‘Great expectations’, Barrett Browning’s ‘Aurora Leigh’, Pope’s ‘Rape of the lock’ and Rossetti’s ‘Goblin market’ through the subversion of stereotypical ideals of motherhood, sisterhood and open female relationships. In subverting the preconceived notions of female behaviour, it challenges the overall gender norms of male and female behaviour. In Christina Rossetti’s ‘Goblin Market’ features women who succumb to temptations of the male’s present at the market within the poem. Through the men being described as animalistic it can be said that the men in the market are foreign and the fruit they are selling become more tempting to the Laura and Lizzie due to the fact they haven’t experience the ‘goblin fruits’ before.
