    Bambini e ragazzi si possano educare da soli; l'amicizia tra loro può aiutarli a migliorarsi; il lavoro e la vita all'aperto garantiscono un corpo sano e favoriscono un buon equilibrio psicologico: queste sono quindi le tesi educative del romanzo, in netto contrasto con le convinzioni pedagogiche dell'epoca. Ma il libro non precorreva i tempi solo in questo: nella seconda parte del libro vengono affrontate e ben spiegate le teorie del "pensiero positivo" e della ripetizione dei pensieri positivi che è alla base di così tante tecniche cosiddette "magiche".....

    What the Narnia books did for wardrobes, The Secret Garden did for the walled garden. Few readers can fail to share with Mary Lennox that inexplicable thrill of anticipation at the notion of an enclosed and secret world, bursting with potential life and beauty but remaining hidden from view. As Mary herself observes, 'Here was another locked door, added to the hundred in the strange house'.

    Frances Hodgson Burnett published The Making of a Marchioness in 1901. She had written Little Lord Fauntleroy 15 years before and would write The Secret Garden in 10 years' time; it is these two books for which she is best known. Yet Marchioness was one of Nancy Mitford's favourite books, was considered 'the best novel Mrs Hodgson Burnett wrote' by Marghanita Laski, and is taught on a university course in America together with novels such as Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and Daisy Miller.
