Laurie vs. Professor Bhaer: A Literary Debate

In response to my post today about the should-have-been romance between Jo March and Laurie Laurence in Little Women, Christina Wehner wrote a post of her own, explaining why Jo should have married Professor Bhaer, as she does in the book. You can find her post here.

I was particularly struck by her observation that Jo and her mother, Marmee, are quite similar, a foreshadowing that Jo will make a similar choice, matrimonially (marrying an older, intellectual man rather than a passionate childhood friend). It has definitely given me food for thought for the weekend. Next Monday, I’ll post the results of my pondering. đŸ™‚
