Para H. G. Wells, El principio de l. a. sabiduría (1910) period los angeles mejor tuition tale que había leído y sigue siendo, sin duda, una novela de formación rica, con pocas concesiones, sardónica y sorprendentemente moderna, salpicada con citas de Nietzsche y un profundo conocimiento de los maestros de los angeles novela europea. Henry Handel Richardson se basó en su propia experiencia en el Presbyterian women collage de Melbourne para escribirla. l. a. necesidad de adaptación –esto es, los angeles necesidad de mentir–, el despertar sexual y las complejidades de un ambiente sumamente hostil se enfrentan en los angeles intempestiva educación de su memorable heroína, que en cierto momento se sorprende a sí misma rezando para no tener «pensamientos distintos de los de las demás».
