Digging Up "The Secret Garden": Noble Innocents or Little Savages?
Wilkie, Christine
Children's Literature in Education, v28 n2 p73-83 Jun 1997
Offers a rereading of Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden," finding in it the triumph of Apollonian male rationalism over the Dionysian female cult of nature. Examines images of primitivism and wildness in the book, connecting them to polarities in conceptions of primitivism. (SR)
