And then there were four.
We’re down to the semifinal round in Bas Bleu‘s Tournament of Classics 2017. Lively Miss Bennet, she of the “fine eyes,” triumphed over the cunning Scarlett (who swore to fight on, but another day). Plucky Anne Shirley and precocious Scout Finch claimed twin victories over Hester Prynne and Jane Eyre. Jo March’s battle to the wits with Miss Marple was a tough one…ceded only, we suspect, because there was a murder in St. Mary Mead requiring the attention of England’s top sleuth.
Is Lizzie any match for Anne’s determined optimism? Will Jo and Scout settle this bout with fisticuffs in the woods? Only you can decide! Vote today, and we’ll reveal the final matchup of literary heroines on Monday, April 3.
