I came across this quote by Charles Dickens today and couldn’t pass it up:
”Little Red Riding Hood was my first love.
I felt that if I could have married Little Red Riding Hood, I should have known perfect bliss.”
But for Charles Dickens, Little Red Riding Hood was someone who could make him the happiest person in the world.
I wish I could talk to him and ask him more about this. What was it about the story of Little Red Riding Hood and her character that connected with him so much he actually considered her his first love??
Sadly, unless I come across something by him where he’s written more on this subject I’ll never know.
