Goblin Market by Christina Rosetti →
fuckyeahvictorian: A Victorian poem discussing a girl’s misadventure into a land of Goblins and the aftermath that follows. Though this poem was written for children, it is filled with sexual undertones that make it not only an interesting story superficially, but symbolically as well.

My Own 'On Writing'
When I write I see the phantoms of people I’ve known throughout my life, from lifelong friends to a person I once saw on the street or in an elevator once. They haunt my mind, they stain me with their memory, and they feed me inspiration for every narrative that makes its way onto a page. Right now I can see a woman in a conservatory playing at her piano, her dark hair cascading down her back and...

I found him in a book called Beasts! which is a collection of creatures from world folklore illustrated by a bunch of different artists. You should check it out, it's really cool AND informative.

Favorite Coversation From the Film Bright Star
Fanny Brawne: I still don't know how to work out a poem.
John Keats: A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving into a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out, it is a experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept the mystery.
Fanny Brawne: I love mystery.

To Autumn by John Keats
1. SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and...

Each From Different Heights by Stephen Dunn
That time I thought I was in love and calmly said so was not much different from the time I was truly in love and slept poorly and spoke out loud to the wall and discovered the hidden genius of my hands. And the times I felt less in love, less than someone, were, to be honest, not so different either. Each was ridiculous in its own way and each was tender, yes, sometimes even the false is tender....

Review of Jane Yolen's Briar Rose
I am still baffled by the amount of rave reviews Briar Rose received. Admittedly, the story is very unique. The idea of comparing the Holocaust to the Sleeping Beauty fairytale may seem a bit far-fetched initially, yet Yolen manages to bring the truth of this parallel to light. Unfortunately, it was executed in a way that really detracted from what was formally an original idea. Instead we...
