Little Women and Pilgrim's ProgressJean Bethke Elshtain wrote a nice piece in the July 29 Weekly Standard (I apologize for being conservative, I apologize for being conservative, I apologize for being conservative! [He beats his breast]! There! Is that good enough?) about the relationship between Little Women and Pilgrim's Progress. It seems that Alcott used PP as a template for LW. My kids love the book. My question: Correct me if I'm wrong, those who know Bunyan, but isn't there an anti-Roman thread in PP? And, if so, does it come through in LW?
