I am so pleased to see attention given in your blog to the Little Lord Fauntleroy suit phenomenon!

I hope that your readers will remember that the suit, described in Burnett's novel as as “a black velvet suit, with a lace collar, and with lovelocks waving about the handsome manly little face,” was a popular formal style for children long before the novel was published. The novel's association increased its popularity briefly and, ultimately, served to drive it into infamy.

Thanks for your comment Kristen, and congratulations on your upcoming conference presentation! The Blades of Glory reference you point out in your abstract is so interesting and really demonstrates the enduring controversey over the Little Lord.


Really enjoyed this post and looking forward to more. Great job!
