Christina Rossetti’s poem “"Goblin Market"” is a piece of literature that caters to multiple audiences. From the poem’s formatting and the way Rossetti wrote the poem, it has strong similarities to a children’s poem and although Rossetti has said that the poem is indeed intended for a young audience, the dark content and underlying themes of this poem hint that this piece of literature is also meant to be consumed for adults in an easily digestible format. " Goblin Market" presents an overall darker perspective on childhood, demonstrating that childhood has two sides: the innocent side that it is most commonly associated with, and a dark, uncivilized side of it. Although "Goblin Market" unifies these two contrasting sides of childhood through the plot of the poem tied in with the nursery-rhyme style writing of the poem, "Goblin Market" ultimately demonstrates that the the amoral and moral notions of youth are separate aspects and that one can not begin dwelling in the immoral aspects of youth without having to leave behind the moral aspects of a youthful life. The content of the poem shows that while a child will inevitably experience his loss of innocence in his youth, it is his choice when he chooses to give in to society’s temptations. "

Folk and fairy tales have been an important aspect in cultures from all corners of the world. Not only do they provide entertainment but they also give insight into how values and morals differ or resemble one another despite differences in distance and time. Advisory tales of how satiating curiosity can be consequential are found in different and unalike cultures from across continents and different time periods. Although they all tell the same moral, the stories vary greatly from one another. The 17th century Bluebeard is infamous for its violence and gore, whilst the Tsuru no Ongaeshi from Japan is a stark contrast with its peaceful setting, and the Arabian nights tale of The History of Ajib is a fantastical mix of both.

When Angela Carter died in 1992, Salman Rushdie said that “English literature has lost its high sorceress, its benevolent witch-queen,” Margaret Atwood called her “the Fairy Godmother,” BBC Late Show presenter “white witch of English literature,” and J.G. Ballard a “friendly witch.” Thus, due to her interest in fairy tales and folklore, the praises and compliments she received were mainly about her rewriting of fairy tales. As Stephen Benson suggests, “the facet of Carter’s work that seems to have made the transition into the mainstream is its association with the fairy tale,” since “[t]he majority of her work as editor and translator revolved around the fairy tale.” In fact, she is preoccupied with fairy tales in most of her fiction works,
