Jean Webster Dear Enemy


Jean Webster (1876-1916) was an American novelist, playwright, and social activist. During the start of the twentieth century (1912), Webster wrote «Daddy-Long-Legs», an epistolary, best-selling novel that she developed into a play. It met with much success, and the characters were sold as dolls, the money from which going to charities to help fund orphan adoptions. In 1915, Webster published the sequel, «Dear Enemy». Written in the same epistolary form, «Dear Enemy» met with best-selling acclaim as well. The novel is unique in that the story is propelled by crude, stick-figure animations, drawn by Webster herself, that add a whimsical air to the social issues addressed, the care of orphans and women's life choices in particular. Sadly, Webster died of childbirth fever in 1916, just a year after the success of «Dear Enemy».

Jean Webster Dear Enemy


'Dear Enemy', by Jean Webster, is a novel the events of which are related in the form of letters by the heroine. A formal introduction, indeed, to one of the most intimate, realistic and thoroughly enjoyable pieces of fiction ever! How a charming young woman, all depths and tenderness under her somewhat frivolous exterior, accepts the superintendency of an orphan asylum, and with it the charge of some hundred and thirteen sadly neglected orphans, is merely the beginning of this altogether whimsical, joyful tale. How she transforms the dreadful interior of the New York orphanage; what she does for the youngsters who don't even know how to play; how she becomes engaged to the wrong man; how she storms the inward citadel of the smileless Scotch doctor, are all told in inimitable letters to which are attached many deliciously funny caricature pen sketches by the author. To those who have read Jean Webster's previous story «Daddy Long-Legs», this romance cannot but increase the enthusiasm for the popularity of its author.

"Daddy-Long-Legs" – Jerusha «Judy» Abbott was brought up at the John Grier Home, an old-fashioned orphanage.

She has an obligation to write him a monthly letter, but she will never know his identity; she must address the letters to Mr. John Smith, and he never will reply. The letters chronicles Judy's educational, personal, and social growth as she attends a «girl's college» on the East Coast.

Jean Webster Daddy-Long-Legs


The books of Jean Webster, like 'Just Patty' or 'When Patty Went to College' have already shown her rare touch of humor. The letters which Judy writes to her anonymous benefactor might have been cut and dried formal reports of college work; but they aren't, for Judy is an electric bundle of spicy originality; and her letters to 'Dear Daddy Long-Legs' are delicious chronicles of a young girl's growth out of a starved, lonely childhood into happy, rich womanhood. The illustrations are the author's own and they look as if they had just been scribbled in fun, on the margin of a letter.
