'She kissed and kissed her with a hungry mouth.' A selection of
Rossetti's most famous poems, from the hallucinatory 'Goblin
Market' to 'In the bleak mid-winter.' Introducing Little Black
Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday. Little Black
Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin
Classics, with books from around the world and across many
centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London
to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th
century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical
and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and
inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.
