Elsie Dinsmore

by Martha Finley

It is often too bad when a work has a 20th and 20th century mind imposed on it. Read Elsie as an example of important Victorian literature. Read it as an example of the world as it was in the 1860s and on for many many years. Stop trying to turn it into a cause, or impose modern morality values onto it. Accept it as it is, and then go read Huck Finn.
