Little Women- Louisa may alcott, Arden Varley-Twyman

 Go then, my little Book, and show to all That entertain and bid thee welcome shall, What thou dost keep close shut up in thy breast; And wish what thou dost show them may be blest To them for good, may make them choose to be Pilgrims better, by far, than thee or me. Tell them of Mercy; she is oneWho early hath her pilgrimage begun. Yea, let young damsels learn of her to prize The world which is to come, and so be wise; For little tripping maids may follow God Along the ways which saintly feet have trod. 

Universal theme: The theme of this book is love, the girls find themselves caught in several love triangles but the love that binds them as sisters keep them together. The picture shows this in the way that the mother loves her child. Day in the life:
Setting: This is the kind of town that the sisters live in, slightly depressed, but they don't seem to mind. This picture is so real life, not staged not pretty, but very raw and the people in the picture don't seem to realize that their town isn't the best place to live. They love it anyways, and appreciate what they have, just like the sisters in little women.
Setting: The small room reminds me of the Sisters house,simple, small, and beautiful in its own way. It is kept clean, but shown love and it makes the room unique. The same thing can be said about the sister's houses.
Tone: The tone of this picture relates to the tone of the story. Both are in a sad world with not much to benefit from, but they are both made beautiful by the perspective of the children and the artist.
Setting: This Reminds me of what the "little women" live in every day, even though this is a beautiful place and a beautiful picture, it is slightly depressed. The artist seems to admire the place, even though it may not be the cleanest, or prettiest. New York City in general is not the most clean. But the way the artist paints the picture depicts a love for the scenery. The same thing goes with the little women. They love their home no matter how run down it is.
Universal theme: The picture has little women's heads hiding behind hearts on a very small scale (you have to zoom in a lot) but this represents in comparison to the book how they are confused about love and try to run away from it at first
Characters perspective: The tone of this scenery is very depressed but also the people seem happy with it which reminds me of little women, how they live in a depressed world but they are not sad or complaining. They make the best out of what they have.
Characters Perspective: The view of the picture reminds me of how Jo sees the outdoors in her perspective. She finds it beautiful which is what the picture is. Jo has a deep appreciation for nature and the outdoors, as does the artist of this picture, which shows.
Connection: This shows how Jo and her sisters work together to mend the house and take care of her mother. The picture is a prime example of the saying, it takes a village. Jo and her sisters work together to get things done and they don't complain, which is the same for the characters in the picture. The people in the picture are harvesting crops and working together, much like the children in the book work together to help their mother. They are connected in their themes. The harvesters in the picture don't seem to be unhappy about what they are doing. Just like the sisters in little women aren't unhappy about what they are doing.
Setting/Mood: This reminds me of the street that Jo and her family live on. She is acquainted with all of her neighbors and they get along well like they do in the picture. It symbolizes unity in a neighborhood, which is something that we all should strive for in our communities.
Character Perspective: This picture seems like Jo's perspective on life, very beautiful and full, lush and pretty. She has a very unique perspective on the outdoors and she seems to enjoy being outside more than in the house. The artist seems to have the same appreciation for the outdoors.
