Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Joe’s Boys – eBook Adaptation By Dr. M. Christianson, JUD
Indiana Freedom Alliance, in cooperation with the North American Freedom Alliance, is proud to announce –
We FINALLY finished our first eStory Book!
In 2016 we set out to gather together some of the most loved literary classics ever written. Books written well before the dawn of the 20th century.
One of our most cherished periods begins and ends in the 1800s. It is generally known as the Victorian Era, but is can also be referred to as the Cult of the Child. This period in time saw the birth of the concept of “childhood,” and Victorians – like none other – were obsessed with their children’s childhood and children more broadly. The girls – and boys especially – were viewed as angelic beings to be coddled, caressed, fondled, and entertained. Children, clothed and naked, adorned advertisements, story books were beginning to be written solely for their reading pleasure, and great swaths of spacious outdoor parks were devoted to them, and their entertainment, alone.
Of course, it was during this Era that an imaginative, quiet man named Charles Dodgson met the 10 year old daughter of Oxford’s Dean, Alice Liddell. Together they would write Alice In Wonderland.
This brief period in history was filled with various sorts of sexual proclivities. For, unlike the myth or modern America, the Victorians were not naked prudes. They were broad minded folks, open to exploring a variety of pleasures from pedophilia to child pornography to necrophilia.
Sadly, and all too often, they did have a slight tendency to fall victim to the molestations of the mind as numerous “experts” popped up in the oddest of places insisting on something or another to prevent early deaths or feeble mindedness. Who can forget the medical experts railing against that solitary vice – masturbation. Remember Jean-Étienne Dominique Esquirol? In his book, Des Maladies Mentales he declared, infallibly, that masturbation was “recognized in all countries as a cause of insanity.” And one article published in 1870 – just a year before the publication of Little Men – boldly wrote, “Health, intellect, morals — all purity, dignity, and self-respect — sink beneath [masturbation] in promiscuous and hopeless ruin. When carried to excess it produces idiotism in the most deplorable and disgusting form, accompanied by impaired vision and hearing, paralysis, and other distressing infirmities, and terminates in death.”
Today, in honor of Louisa May Allcott’s genuine love of children, we decided to begin our classical adaptations with her award winning novel, Little Men, or Life at Plumfield with Jo’s Boys. This humorous tale is a children’s classic, first published in 1871. We have kept her classical text, but only slightly (and ever so carefully) adapted her manuscript to allow for humorous, brief moments of naked play to be enjoyed by the children at Plumfield estate.
