Molly Clark Hillard, Dickens's Little Red Riding Hood and Other Waterside Characters Beginning with a moment in "A Christmas Tree" when Charles Dickens recalls Little Red Riding Hood as his lost "first love" and moving on to illustrate how the fairy-tale child served as a recurrent imaginative figure for the author as a maiden always already devoured, this essay reveals Dickens's speculation upon labor, nostalgia, and the literary value of folklore in his last novel Our Mutual Friend, in which the author recognizes that to decry the commercial value of girls is itself commercially valuable and that to mourn the death of Riding Hood is to eternally resurrect her body.
