    1. Their fruits like honey to the throat But poison in the blood;

      This describes what is consider like sin in the bible which was in John 8:34" Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slaves to sin." This is why we sin because it feels good.

    2. Lest they should cram a mouthful in: But laugh’d in heart to feel the drip Of juice that syrupp’d all her face, And lodg’d in dimples of her chin, And streak’d her neck which quaked like curd. At last the evil people,

      Her resistance drove them away. Which I can again relate it to addicts finally winning over their addictions. To me gives off a former drug addict vibe fighting of these little goblins which represent the temptation of repeating.

    3. Their tones wax’d loud, Their looks were evil. Lashing their tails They trod and hustled her, Elbow’d and jostled her, Claw’d with their nails, Barking, mewing, hissing, mocking, Tore her gown and soil’d her stocking, Twitch’d her hair out by the roots, Stamp’d upon her tender feet, Held her hands and squeez’d their fruits Against her mouth to make her eat. White and golden Lizzie stood,

      I'll read this like somebody fighting a drug habit. The recovering addicts usually describe as fighting their demonsin the sense of fighting of the temptation to use again .White & Golden also seems represents purity or clean.

      Could the Goblin Market be considered a sinister market?Do these goblin sell more than fruits?

    2. Men of England, wherefore plough For the lords who lay ye low? Wherefore weave with toil and care The rich robes your tyrants wear?

    3. Princes, the dregs of their dull race, who flow Through public scorn,—mud from a muddy spring;

    1. ORANGE MARMALADE

      I never heard of Orange Marmalade looked it up to see and Marmalade generally refers to a fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits boiled with sugar and water Does sound so Healthy but sound pretty good.

    2. suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.

      Check out how unique the author writes. "SUDDENLY down, so SUDDENLY that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping HERSELF before she found HERSELF. falling down a VERY DEEP WELL. and He begins the next paragraph with " Either the WELL was VERY DEEP" Did he purposely use this kind repetition or was not intentional.

    3. Alice started to her feet,

      Here is a better example. "Alice started to her feet" I had to read this slow to understand. I know what he means due to the follow up sentence. But he could of said "Alice quickly rose to her feet" or Alice got up so fast she stumble". Not saying I don't like the authors work I do its different. Makes me wonder what made him choose this word play.

    4. In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

      Early on I see the author has a different writing style. I can't really explain it but the wording is off. "how in the world she was to get out again" why didn't the author just write "She enter the whole but never thought if there was a way out"

    1. The Chimney Sweeper (Songs of Experience)

      The Chimney Sweeper(Songs of Experience) has more of a dull tone and depressed ring to it. This quote here gave me the tone of a sad kind of ambiance "They clothed me in the clothes of death, and taught me to sing notes of woe.

    2. As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight! That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, & Jack, Were all of them locked up in coffins of black; And by came an Angel who had a bright key, And he opened the coffins & set them all free; Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run, And wash in a river and shine in the Sun.

      Tom speaks of sweepers who had passed away but now live in heaven living in peace. He had the angel tell him in a dream if he's good he'll also go to heaven. which is what motivates the poor kid to keep on cleaning.

    3. soot

    1. And when I didn’t finish my dinner, my mother would say, “Finish your food! Don’t you know? People like Fide’s family have nothing.”

      I can relate to this so much because in my culture if your are not finishing the food it's a sign of disrespect to others who don't have food. Denying food also is a sign of disrespect. You most always finish the food and must always accept the food .

    2. What struck me was this: She had felt sorry for me even before she saw me. Her default position toward me, as an African, was a kind of patronizing, well-meaning pity. My roommate had a single story of Africa: a single story of catastrophe. In this single story, there was no possibility of Africans being similar to her in any way, no possibility of feelings more complex than pity, no possibility of a connection as human equals.

      Sadly her roommate is not the only one who has this misconception of Africa. Explains why it smart to educate your self about Africa and learn from it.

    3. All my characters were white and blue-eyed, they played in the snow, they ate apples, and they talked a lot about the weather, how lovely it was that the sun had come out. Now, this despite the fact that I lived in Nigeria.I had never been outside Nigeria.We didn’t have snow, we ate mangoes,and we never talked about the weather,because there was no need to. My characters also drank a lot of ginger beer, because the characters in the British books I read drank ginger beer. Never mind that I had no idea what ginger beer was.

      I can tell that when she was an early writer a lot of her creation came from curiosity. You can see in how she mention snow then later saying she never seen had snow and that her character drank ginger beer but she did'nt know what ginger beer was.
