This coupled with her passionate temperament makes Sylvia a compelling figure as she resists efforts to mold her with every rebellious fiber of her independent nature. 'br/''br/' Sylvias home is a Montessori home where everyone takes part in household tasks and the children learn by being included in adult activities. Without making a show of being different her father a popular professor at the Midwest state university in La Chance lives the life of the mind in a rambling farmhouse instead of on a faculty row among his upwardly mobile colleagues: her mothers wardrobe is more suited to canning tomatoes than to impressing sophisticated town set.Ł 'br/''br/' Although Sylvia adapts outwardly to her parents values inwardly she suffers because of her familys difference from both town and university standards. A dazzling occasional presence in her life is the flamboyant Aunt Victoria who keeps a mansion in Lydford Vermont and an apartment in Paris. Sylvia responds to such luxury and her attempts to evade moral questions concerning the distribution of wealth lend a human aspect to a social dilemma. 'br/''br/' First published in 1915 'em'The Bent Twig'/em' is the first of Dorothy Canfields novels to give fictional form to the Montessori method and to reflect the insights into education and human development that she gained in Rome while visiting Maria Montessori. The novels concerns with gender roles race relations substance abuse the environment and the welfare of children remain contemporary and still speak to us across the years.'/'
