The poem “Goblin Market” by Chistina Rossetti is about the impact of food addiction. People try to warn them not to eat the fruit and talk about what happens if they eat it. They utilize the organic product to entice her like they would with drugs. they may appear to be good on the outside, but that does not necessarily imply that they are good on the inside. The goblins were portrayed in this manner. However, they have other ideas. Therefore, they attempt to profit from that. They describe the fruits in terms that give you an idea of how good they are. The structure of the poem is as follows: first, they talk about how delicious fruits and berries are, but then they say that you shouldn’t eat them because eating them would cause bad things. The connection between pleasure and food as a substance. Laura succumbs to the temptation and experiences withdrawal in the poem. Lizzy endeavors to acquire more fruit. The Goblins get upset since she would not eat it, so they attempt to compel it. However, they were unsuccessful. She returns home and informs Laura that she can consume the juice. Lizzy puts herself at risk. Similar to an antidote.
