That can speak to me even if I am a grown up manWhen I became a middle aged man I discovered Goodreads There is an option to screen members who apply to become your friend by asking the applicant a uestion I thought then that the choice of genre was important so I chose this uestion What is your favorite literary genre and from then on I have been accepting and ignoring invites based on hisher answer I generally don t accept invites from Shel Silversteins WiseAss Sayings people who say they don t have anyreference I thought that that kind of answer is wishy washy or indecisive that reflects his or her not being a serious readerPrior to last year I said I don t want to read fantasy books I am too old for that Until I read the whole series of JRRTolkien s The Lord of the Rings and I say wow wow wow I did not know that I could still be amazed by a fantasy book about wizards trolls flying horse monsters and little creatures This book The Secret Garden is a kind of book that I would not even consider reading It is neither a 501 nor a 1001 book The reason why I read this is that it is one of the Top 100 Favorite Books of The Filipino Group here at Goodreads We challenged ourselves to read all the chosen books so I gave this a tryStory wise it is too sweeet Saccharine corny Predictable Inappropriate for a middle age man like me Almost insulting to intelligence feisty girl turns sweet girl Sickly unwanted boy turns healthy Then the boy and father embrace each other and How Much Poo Does an Elephant Do? profess love for one another Hu hu hu Books can just hit you without any warning I was sad yet happy when I closed this book this morning I think I am going crazy reading different books and experience all the different emotions while reading them So I don t know any I don t know what I like in books Noreferences Ask me now what is my favorite genre I don t know But the writing in this book is flawless I have attended a novel writing workshop last year and all the ingredients of a good novel are here well developed characters each of them has hisher own distinct voice and transforming towards the end milieu the garden is clearly described and very significant in the story the internal and external conflicts are arranged like small to tall majorettes in a In the Nick of Time parade the hooks at the end of each chapter the climax the falling action the denouement ties up the loose ends from the conflicts The theme is solid The lessons though corny are school textbook kind of reminders that love is important to make this world a betterlace and nature is beautiful so we have to take care of itI guess my realization is this yes at some An Eyewitness Account of Early American Beekeeping points in our lives we tend torefer some literary genres over the others However the genre is secondary to the writing If the writer is good no matter in which genre the book belongs heshe should be read It is not the genre it genre the book belongs heshe should be read It is not the genre it the writing Book 16 of 30 for my 30 day reading challenge I first read this wonderful and evocative absolute and utter gem of a story at around the age of twelve and it was likely one of the first longer novels I read entirely in English not counting those books read entirely for school And I simply adored Frances Hodgson Burnett s The Secret Garden when I read it as a young teenager or rather a tween I continued to love it when I reread it multiple times while at university and I still massively loved the novel when I reread the story for the Children s Literature Group in 2011 and I much continue to love it having reread it at least twice or so since then And indeed I honestly do think that I have actually enjoyed The Secret Garden even as an adult than the times I read the novel when I was younger and that is definitely saying an awful lot For when I first read The Secret Garden as a was younger and that is definitely saying an awful lot For when I first read The Secret Garden as a teenager I was certainly much enchanted by the garden and of course the Robin and really liked and enjoyed reading about the Sowerbys but I did kind of consider both Mary and Colin as somewhat too spoiled and selfish I understood their Je te hais... la folie - tome 2 problems and indeed felt empathy but I also felt than a bit annoyed at and by them something that I certainly did not experience as much during my adult rereads Because as an adult reader I actually and firmly believe that most if not even all of both Mary s and Colin sroblems and behavioural uirks be they emotional or Confessional physical were and are the result ofarental abandonment and emotional neglect maybe even abuse They act and react towards the world the way the world or at least how most of the world has always acted and reacted towards them And without the garden but also without characters like Martha Susan and Dickon Sowerby without Ben Weatherstaff and the Robin there would never have been any change in and for Mary or at least not ever enough change and by extension there would never have been any change in and for Colin and his father eitherNow one interesting and thought Prater Violet provoking factresented in The Secret Garden is that there actually seems to be a real and almost Battleground (Code Red, palpable absence of nurturing father figures throughout except maybe Dickon but he is just a boy and in many ways resembles a Pan like nature deity and Ben Weatherstaff really is too old and curmudgeonly to be considered nurturing and fatherly We do have uite a number of nurturing mother figuresortrayed. Utrice racconta la storia di una bimba che rimasta improvvisamente orfana lascia l'India Finding Merlin per essere condotta da uno zio in Inghilterra Laiccola cambia A Born Victim paese e abitudini e si trova sperduta traersone sconosciute Invece di stupire l'animo de. Who aid Mary and later Colin in their recovery Susan and Martha Sowerby and even Mary later becomes somewhat of a motherly and nurturing figure towards Colin but we never see or hear much about a Mr Sowerby he is a complete nonentity And while indeed much is made of the fact that Mary Lennox mother did not seem to want her child a fact that is rightfully criticised that Mr Lennox did not trouble himself much about his daughter either while mentioned briefly is also seemingly accepted as an acceptable societal given Also that Mr Craven has spiritually and emotionally totally abandoned Colin and cannot stand to even see him when he is awake just because his son s eyes supposedly remind him of the BOY S DEAD MOTHER WHILE THIS s dead mother while this indeed noted in The Secret Garden his rather vile and nasty attitude and behaviour towards Colin towards his son is not at least in my humble opinion subject to nearly the same amount of harsh criticisms that Mary s emotional and spiritual abandonment by her mother is And while I do realise and even understand that the death of Mr Craven s wife was traumatic for him both Mr Carven s and Mrs Lennox actions or rather their lack of love and acceptance towards their children have had the same horrible sychological and sychosomatic conseuences basically turning both of them into emotional cripples and Colin into a hysterical hypochondriac who thinks he has a crooked back The Secret Garden clearly and lastingly demonstrates that children no that anyone can only show love can only be lovable if they have experienced love themselves In the beginning of the novel Mary is described as tyrannical unpleasant thoroughly unlovable and also as somewhat odd But how can Mary know anything about love if she has never experienced love Her arents certainly do not seem to want her and she has basically been abandoned to the care of servants who have also been instructed to keep Mary out of the way as much as Travels With A Hungry Bear possible and in her innermost soul Mary likely also realises this and much and rightly resents this Mary s temper tantrums towards her Ayah and other servants her desire to always get her own way are not merely Mary imitating the behaviour she witnesses among the exat community in India although that likely also has a major Code Blue part tolay I believe that in many ways the servants also act as representatives of her absent Beast parents and by lashing out at the servants Mary is also lashing out at her careless unloving absentarents by Foundling (Monster Blood Tattoo, proxyAnd even when Mary first arrives at Misselthwaite there is still a real and everresent danger that she will never be able to change to emerge out of her shell or to change enough for at least in England Mary has the opportunity to go outside and Ammonites and Leaping Fish playrun which was notossible in India due to the hot stiflingly humid climate for many of the inhabitants of the manor but especially Mrs Medlock and Mr Craven regard Mary or seem to regard Mary the same way that her The Break of Dawn (Vamp Chronicles, parents did either not at all or as a cumbersome even loathsome burden And without Martha Dickon and the influence of Martha s mother Mrs Sowerby and of course Ben Weatherstaff and the Robin who is a bird but might just represent the spirit of Colin s deceased mother not much would likely have ever changed for Mary or within Mary There might well have been somehysical improvement of her health but her mental health her soul would likely have remained for the most art sour and disagreeable and stagnated Finally I do have to admit that I have a bit of a roblem with the fact that oh so many of the adults Doctor Who portrayed in The Secret Garden and even inherentlyositive individuals like Martha and Susan Sowerby keep bringing up the fact that Mary s mother was supposedly very Sarah Annes Expedient Marriage (Unshakable Faith, physically attractive and that in many ways Mary is often judged negatively because she islain while her mother was considered very beautiful However Mary s mother does not in any way care about or for her daughter and had in fact never wanted a daughter and in my opinion her careless unloving attitude and that of her husband as well is reflected in Mary s countenance her whole being Thus even though Mrs Lennox might have been Yoru Made Matenai 7 physically sweet looking she basically has a careless and unloving and massively sour read nastily ugly soul which is in my opinion reflected in her daughter both spiritually andhysically And just to further Satans Angel point out that this here Norton Critical Edition of The Secret Garden which seems to have beenublished in 2006 is to be most highly recommended especially for anyone interested in both the novel the narrative and its historical contexts diverse critical voices etc as it The Dead End (Poison Apple provides not only the textroper which is simply and utterly magical of course but also much supplemental information and materials about Frances Hodgson Burnett and her timeless literary classic And although I do not think that this edition lists every Superstress Solution piece of extant literary criticism on The Secret Garden there truly and fortunately is a goodly amountresented as well as a solid although not extensive selected bibliography most definitely a than adeuate starting The House of Ravensbourne point for serious academic study and research This was an absolute joy ride and like my friend Karinut it it was lovely and heartwarming.
