Reviews of : A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Nancy Bond (Foreword) PDF Book
Inside this Book – My mother thought it completely foolish of me to buy a hardcover book and then finish it in one night (these were the days before Harry Potter and, besides, we had enough books in our house, in her opinion). But I loved owning this edition with its gorgeous images and, when I gave it to my younger cousins in Singapore, believing myself ready to part with my childhood attachment to a book I wouldn’t ever forget, I did mourn its loss, though I was a teenager by then and studying the dead white male canon. I’m an awful person, I know, but when I visited my family in Singapore the year before I graduated from college, I noticed the book on their shelf and asked to see it, and my aunt, noticing how my face lit up, asked if I wanted it back.
Inside this book –A Little Princess PDF Book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Nancy Bond (Foreword) – “Whatever comes,” she said, “cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.” Much can be said about the improbabilities in the plot, about the desperate sentimentality and caricature of Victorian England’s boarding school system. It doesn’t matter. To me, Sarah Crewe will always remain a symbol for inner strength, perseverance and values winning over greed, sadism and abusive power. I can’t recall how many times I read my hardcover copy as a young girl, shivering with anger and fear when the young heiress thinks she has lost everything and is turned into an unpaid maid at the school where she used to be a shining star.
