Christina Rossetti was a nineteenth century English poet from a prominent artistic family who wrote the “Goblin Market.” The tripartite female is clearly portrayed in Goblin Market. All three women--Laura, Lizzie, and Jeanie--are maidens.
Dee Dee: 'We must not look at goblin men. We must not buy their fruits. Who knows upon what soil they fed, their hungry thirsty roots?'
The Doctor: Actually, I don't think that's helping.
Professor Hobbes: She's not a goblin or a monster. She's just a very sick woman.
Jethro: Maybe that's why it went for her.
Professor Hobbes: There is no it!
This is a quote from Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894). Originally written in 1859 and published in 1862, Rossetti claimed it was a children's poem, despite some heavy sexual imagery. It tells of the temptation of two sisters to try the Goblin merchants' fruit.
