I compiled this from posts from 4 years ago. I think I’d found a list but didn’t find it comprehensive so I made my own based I assume on the references from the copy of Little Women, I had? So if I’m missing anything (and I aimed to include any reference, general and specific, quoted or alluded to) please tell me. I think I’d like to remember to see if I can catch anything from her other works and well as try to get into the habit to do this with more authors.
Also, I think I mostly chose correctly the first time between italics and quotes, but I thought I’d look up to be sure, here is a handy reference for that purpose.
I’ve bolded any authors, works, etc. that I’ve read.
Columella, Lucius Junius
Raymond, Richard John
Sherwood, Mrs. Mary Martha
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott. (I read this ages ago, at least I think I read it in full; it isn’t as scandalous as implied by many, just for her audience at the time; I have, however come across her “Jo March is rebuked by Professor Bhaer writings” which are scandalous).
Corinne by Madame de Staël
Dombey and Son
Evelina by Frances Burney (this is the least sappy of the three Burney novels I’ve read and the one I have hitherto decide to keep, edit: I recently purged, rather regret, maybe I can find a prettier copy; the other two I’ve read are Camilla and Cecilia).
Heir of Redclyffe
Ivanhoe. Mom read this aloud to us, but I’m not sure if I’ve read it on my own or not.
