Chapter 39: Lazy Laurence

Summary

Laurie spends a month instead of the planned week in France. He finds himself drawn to Amy, but she is disgusted with him. She is too lady-like and he too lazy for them to actually quarrel, but she accuses him of indolence and of neglecting his own talent and potential. When she discovers that the reason for his indifference is Jo’s rejection, Amy is sympathetic but still cannot accept the changes in him. Laurie tries to affect an indifference to her scolding, but her words have a profound effect on him.


Notes

This chapter is a typical "boy-meets-girl," quarrels with her, leaves, then makes up and finally returns to fall in love structure. Chapters 39 and 41 complete a miniature plot within a plot that follows the sequence of the hero’s journey motif.
