Favorite Scenes: Puffed Sleeves

  1. A literary scene, that will always stay with me, is Heidi searching for a bell tower that will be high enough for her to see the mountains that she longs for. It brings an emotion close to hiraeth that the Welsh use to describe homesickness and an extreme longing for something lost.

    1. I love all the Heidi scenes! When she and Grandfather make her a place to stay in the loft and when she and Peter climb and climb and finally reach the spot where they can rest and she has bread and cheese for her lunch. Oh, I could go on and on! Love Heidi, just love her.


  2. I love the scene in Pollyanna when she goes wandering in the dark and the aunt (heretofore showing no emotion) nearly loses her mind with worry. As a punishment she tells Polly “you’ll have to sleep in my bed tonight” and good ol’ Pollyanna is SO HAPPY — she says something like, “this is the best night of my life!”
    Pollyanna is my literary kindred spirit.
