Little Women. April 12, 2020

I can understand it if some reading this today consider it to be insufficiently woke, but I found it quite remarkable. It is a bit disappointing that the dreams of independence planted in the first part of the novel aren’t fully realized in the second, but that supports the message that in the passage from childhood to adulthood something is inevitably lost. That message is timeless, and I haven’t seen it done better then in Little Women.
