Spooky season begins for WT Great Books Series with discussion of ‘Goblin Market’

CANYON — For West Texas A&M University’s Great Books Series, Dr. Monica Hart, associate professor of English at WT, will lead a discussion of Christina Rossetti’s narrative poem “Goblin Market” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12 via Zoom.

The discussion series — sponsored by the Department of English, Philosophy and Modern Languages in the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities — is open to those who either have or haven’t read the book, said Dr. Daniel Bloom, Great Books organizer and associate professor of philosophy in a news release.

Dr. Monica Hart, associate professor of English at WT, will lead the discussion of Christina Rossetti’s narrative poem “Goblin Market” at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 via Zoom.

“At first glance, ‘Goblin Market’ seems like a fairy tale,” Hart said. “Two sisters live in a fictional land with goblins who offer forbidden fruit for sale. One sister gives in to temptation, buys the goblin fruit, suffers terrible consequences, but is saved by her loving sister. Straightforward tale of fall and redemption, right? Not really, no.”
