I think one of the main ideas that Christina Rossetti put across in her poem is that if a perfect god is willing to give us a second chance why is an imperfect society not willing with regard to fallen women. I think the poem Goblin Market has a lot of issues that Christina Rossetti was dealing with or had dealt with at the time it was written. Including love, how fallen women were treated, where she worked, her brother; and his treatment of his wife.

The classics were also studied for their moral, political and philosophical worth, which often coincided with traditional Christian values. It is for this reason that in The Faerie Queene we see a mixture of Pagan Gods and Christian images.
